I got and read this book because it won an Edgar Award for the best mystery of the year. It's not a traditional mystery--it's much more. It's an atmospheric, literature-like story about a town in the 30s where something awful happens and someone dies as a result. The story includes the coming of age of a teenage boy and a lot of excellent, touching insight into life. While I don't normally seek out this kind of reading, I really liked this book. For mystery fans, yes, it does include a nice mystery.

Edgar Award Winner and truly deservedly so!!! Fabulous book -- excellent prose and vocabulary. Much more than a "mystery" -- truly a character novel as well. Recommend highly.

I must have a different book: I stuck with it until half way then quit, it is boring, lifeless, colorless, and senseless!
