Didn't actually finish it. I got it for Christmas this year because an author I do like, CJ Cherryh, gave it a rec on her site. Turned out to not be my type of book. The book says about itself, "STRANGE ROBBY is a sharp, satisfying page-turner, a thrilling ride like a cross between NYPD Blue and The X-Files." So if you like those shows you might like the book.
