This looks like it may be pretty good. I haven't read it yet but I may try to find it. Has anybody read this book?

well, you shouldn't have any trouble getting rid of the book after you read it considering there are around 70 wishes for it now.

I'['m almost half thru. So far it is very good, interesting characters --suspenseful. If it continues to be this good, I'll probably pass it on to my mom and sister.

Finished the book. The second half wasn't as good as the first. you have to suspend belief a bit. the mc  is made out to be a "superman" and of course the girl he loves is beautiful, blah, blah. -  reminded me a bit of a james patterson/harlan coben. not that that is a bad thing, as i like both patterson and coben. i just thought  "the life we bury" was going to be different. more about the vietnam vet would have been appreciated. all in all it was a good read and i liked it - 4 stars. worth reading if you  like suspense . -
