I thought this would really be a gem, but it fell kind of flat. As much as I wanted to like it, I found it hard to, and several times this book was nearly abandoned. I found Gilkey to be likeable enough- but more obsessive than anything else. Sanders, I had assumed, we would have seen more of, or would have been more detailed, or just something... more. I also thought he would be more of a dectective or investigator. Overall, it saddens me to say, not what I expected, and kind of a disappointment.
