hear a little about everyone It s a little haphazard at times but t does a good joba little about everyone It s a little haphazard at times but t does a good job moving the story along at a good clipview spoilerI saw the ending coming perhaps before Yessayan planned since I didn t think t was Mitch because he hadn t mentioned any kind of grandparent n his life before I thought t was Brendan for a while especially since he was described as strong and he d left Boston to go to college back n the day readers find out that the killer went to University of Arizona and killed a girl there But then when Alves discovers that the shoe print found outside of Susan McCarthy s house was a fit for Mitch s I remembered that Connie said he had Mitch s gym bag from before she was killed and I figured he had to be Richter That and the fact that the police profile said that the killer was probably mpotent matched up with us knowing that he and Andi hadn t gone beyond kissing Plus after having been careful all those times before A'dan Z'ye Yaşar Kemal it seemed hard to believe that the evidence against Mitch wasn t a set up I was left dissatisfied by Connie s motivations and I found Mitch s suicide to be out of line with what we knew of him the story about how his adopted dad killed himself seems to have been meant to foreshadow It seemed like a handy plot device to tie things up As for Connie I thought his killing people and preserving the bodies so he could have a fake jury eightn the box n his newly up basement was a shock although f you flip back you ll see a line n the beginning about Connie was a handyman and had finished his basement to make the house really his but him killing 8 people to practice his opening arguments seems extreme given what we knew of him And props to Yessayan since I realized with about 10 pages left that I knew very little of Connie s past despite having spent a good amount of time with him hide spoiler I think the author didn t know f he wanted a legal book a police procedural or something n between The something n between didn t uite workToo many characters not enough fleshed out I started confusing Brendan with Mitch and Monica with AndiAuthor liked the The Collaborative Habit: Life Lessons for Working Together information dump by dialog whichs one of my least favorite ways to get Curse of Rocky Colavito importantnfo outThe twist came totally out of left field and made no sense at all considering the story that came before t It was like he was trying to shock you n the worst way possibl. M battles With each new attack the twisted mystery only deepens and the hunger for answers and action ntensifies No sane mind could comprehend the dark design behind t all And no one can anticipate the final fateful strokes that will lead to a shocking endgame?.
