It's also a mystery focusing on a family of what appeared to be squatters blown to bits in a secluded area, most likely the victims of an errant practice bombing run. How the discovery of their bodies is handled, accurately depicts the race relations of that period in history when a senator declares: "If it had been a white family, we would probably have to get the sheriff involved, or the state attorney. But a homeless black family? I say we cover it up. Completely."
There were a number of surprises in this book for me. I thought I had it all figured out, but I was wrong more than once.
Full of vivid metaphors, accurate details and dialogue I felt as if I were there watching everything unfold.
There is a lot of insight including one of my favorite paragraphs: "Doug began to feel as if he'd known these guys his whole life. It seemed strange to him--you could know guys like this in your home town, and never really look at them, never have much of an impression of them at all, except how they fit into your life--the guy who pumped your gas or worked at the hardware store--until you were thrown into his company, and you discovered he was not just a dumbs*** guy, but a unique person with a story and a reason for being the dumbs*** he was, and he became a puzzle to figure out, and in trying to figure him out, you began to see things in his face, and he even began to look different."
Also a lot of wit like this passage following a young airman's description of a bombing run on Japan at the dinner table when: "Vivian mapped the story out on her plate: the mashed potatoes were Japan, the roast beef China, the peas the B-25s launched from the peach chutney to bomb the potatoes. When her mother glared at her, she scooped some bombers and part of Japan into her mouth."
Extremely entertaining and intriguing. Highly recommended.
