This is the first book I've read by this author and I was intrigued by the plot description. But why did I wait so long to pick it up off my large stack or TBR? The plot swings are amazing. The clues are strewn everywhere. Red herrings abound. But I had each turn in the story figured out before the author revealed his surprise. So I really wasn't too surprised at the end. Or what I thought was the end. That's when the author laid a big surprise on me.
It's easy to understand why he won so many awards. The book was well written, and the plots and subplots were realistic. I just requested six more of his novels here.
