Maybe I was pulled into this story by the fact that it is about Cleveland, where I live and by the fact that the author is from Shaker Heights, a town I lived in for 40 years. The story is well told, with believable characters and gives you the feeling that there is a mysterious under- truth, soon to be revealed. Pretty good read.

New title,mystery

this sounds promising....two separate,but joint stories about women,careers, and bad men...want to read more a out this...especially the robbers of the locked vault boxes.

I think the jist of the book is really good.... but it just too repetitive going back and forth in time with nothing much happening.
