I read this book first and the memoir about her father (The Shadow Man, written in 1996) second. For me, that was the correct order. I think that if I had read the book about her father first, what I knew about the father would have gotten in the way ...more

I adored this book! It isn't really a mystery even though a crime is solved within the story. The author is adept at writing from within many of the character's heads and sometimes their thoughts are not only extremely funny also hit me close to home ...more

A series of short stories (although the first story is the longest); all connected by the setting in northern California. The writing is very clear with a feeling of sadness woven through although I didn't find it off-putting. This was a good quick r ...more

This is a great story: part mystery, party family dynamics, part color and class divisions, part contemporary history, and part legal machinations. This was a compelling read with interesting characters, some action, a little suspense, lots of legal ...more

This was a compelling story and one that I read quickly. I agree with Deborah that this wouldn't be on my top ten as I didn't think the writing was top notch. I do think this is a very discussable book and would be great for a book discussion group.
