While many are not that concerned with the death of a man he'd once called a friend, there are a select few who feel that there's more to the case than meets the eye. Bobby Mack, the assistant D.A., wants to acquire Frank's services in digging a little deeper into Jack Dahlgren's death. He's convinced that Frank can find what it is that they're not seeing.
Unable to deny his friend's request, Frank stumbles into a world that leaves him wondering what he's gotten into. As another killing rattles the community, he does his best to unravel the clues that have been subtly left behind and begins to wonder whether it's possible for the killer to come after him, as well. Come what may, he intends to set things straight. To shine the light at the end of the tunnel in hopes of redeeming himself and setting all wrongs to right.
David has written such a complex and intriguing story that leaves the reader on the edge of his/her seat as they delve deeper into the book in hopes of finding out what happens next. The myriad of characters that we come across as the story progresses adds and enhances the story as we learn about the circumstances that have led Frank to where he is now. I enjoyed the book very much and actually found myself doing some research on Saint Philomena. Truly recommend reading it.
The story is a page turner for sure. I finished it in two evenings. I couldn't guess who the murderer was.
I recommend this book to my Pittsburgh friends and anyone who enjoys a suspenseful well written murder story.
The only flaw (as far as I'm concerned) was that not everyone in Pittsburgh drinks Imp and Iron.
The police mystery was pretty good and the author did a pretty good job building the puzzle piece by piece until the solution was revealed at the end. It wasn't what you expected but you will suspect who is the murderer earlier in the book but find nothing to tie this person to the crimes.
I did find the story lagged at times when the cast of characters reminisced about their high school days. I stuck with it because I grew up in western PA (not in Pittsburgh) but knew of the area.

There are a great many characters in this book, perhaps too many altogether and too many who are underdeveloped. Read morePublished on July 7, 2013 by Rosemary
