really liked it

A rather suspenseful novel about a closeted old gay man living in a small town in Illinois, and what happened to one of his best friends fifty years ago, and what his brother has been up to since they were estranged.

It was very good, very spot-on in the descriptions of the town (white squirrels, like Olney, IL!) and townsfolk. The only thing I really didn't like was the title - when I finally figured out where it came from, at the end of the book, I thought it didn't fit in well with the rest of the story.
