I usually enjoy mysteries, yet I could not get into this one. I felt the plot development could have been stronger -- revelations involving several characters came when I no longer remembered who the characters were. This is largely because it was not a page-turner -- it took me two weeks to read. However, it did hold my attention in places, and the author clearly did his research on Boston, where most of the novel is set, unlike other writers I've read. The science fiction premise was also interesting, although a firmer grasp on the background would have helped set the stage. Not a bad book, not a memorable one, either.
