it was ok
Read in January, 2003

** spoiler alert ** Usually, Lehane's fast-paced prose, ear for color and somewhat shopworn characterizations can combine to drive a decent story. But the whodunit reveal in this one was an eyeroll-generating cop out. Why not just pin the murder on Dee Snyder or Ozzy?

Liz Totally felt the same way. Loved the book. Sucky ending. I didn't care about that plot line at all or those characters.
