I didn't feel that the story was well structured or developed- it seemed to rush in places and dither in others. We went from 0-60 with Shenk becoming the Arrowhead Killer without having any kind of knowledge of who he really was (and therefore didn't have a connection with him). There were a lot of characters and an obviously-imaginative conspiracy plot going on, but I didn't find the links between sections were strong enough for me to be sure what the point of it all was.
I initially liked the character of Caitlin as she was realistic and complex, but this seemed to go down hill, with her swooning over some guy she meets in a bar and espousing such gems as 'if a woman wants to get a man she mustn't eat in front of him,' which really seemed at odds with her as a strong, independent person. And I wasn't sure how Diggs went from not fancying the other detective and wanting to keep him at arm's length, to suddenly kissing him. Again, it seemed like she went against everything that had been set up about her character.
I struggled to believe that people would so readily accept that a magical crystal was controlling a murderer and making him invincible, or that the police, FBI and media would give credence to this theory- even if it was suggested by a well-respected Native American. There were attempts to suggest the science behind the whole crystal thing, but I didn't find it convincing at all.
If the story was supposed to be in another world where such mystical happenings are more common and accepted, this wasn't made clear.
I was also put off by the constant repeated mentions of the fact that the other detective was supposed to look like Halle Berry. I got this after the first mention, it didn't need to be belaboured in such a way.
Overall, I can see the good points to the book, and it's obvious that a lot of thought went into it, but it just wasn't for me/I wasn't convinced by it.
