The third novel in the Ironwood County series . . . another masterpiece. Schreiber again changes his style to match the theme and character--this time an obsessive/compusive narrator who has a good heart but has more issues than National Geographic. A wonderful novel. ( )

A great thriller that maintains Schreiber's stylistic flairs that add to the theme of the novel. The novel jumps right into the action, then in a series of flashbacks, develops one of the characters who is dead. At the same time, the plot races along as the narrator (Matt Blake) tries to solve his friend's murder(?).

What sets this apart from other thrillers? Simple: the fully realized characters and relationships. You come away from this novel believing that you've actually known (and care) about these characters. You also come away knowing more about yourself. ( )

Matt Blake returns to his hometown of Hillcrest because he believe his best friend was murdered while fly-fishing. Blake, a failure at everything he has tried--including marriage--is forced to face his past and learn the meaning of love--if he can live long enough.

This novel brings together characters from previous Ironwood County novels, yet it isn't necessary to have read the others before reading this one. Each of the Ironwood County novels has a unique style of its own, matching the narrator.

Hey, you didn't think I'd give this less than a five, did you? Let me know what you think. ( )
