The plot has plenty of u-turns & red herrings to keep you guessing. The pace & slow drip of clues keep you reading. And while Brock still has huge gaps in his memory, he's learning to deal with the challenges & ...more

Rosenfelt adds so many characters and possible connections among them that a detective explains at the end:
