I'd say there are three protagonists in this novel, and would be hard-pressed to identify any one of them as dominant. The reader sees what's going on in the minds of two of them right from the beginning -- the middle-aged, stoic, honorable but slightly stodgy, former-Marine-turned-prison-guard, Walt; and the edgier but wary Darla who is smitten with him. She is beautiful, desirable, many years Walt's minor, and impatient with Walt's deflection of her ardor.
And then there's Jack Weiss, a convict enrolled in an experimental behavior modification program.
It is Darla's and Walt's job to delve into Jack's psyche to help determine his true nature. But what an enigma Jack is. Like Walt and Darla, the reader knows only what Jack chooses to reveal, and that is not nearly enough to provide a true picture of his inner workings. And yet . . . and yet you may feel that you've met Jack before. Or someone just like him. Someone slippery. Someone you don't trust any farther than you can see him. Someone you know is a snake in the grass. Someone who, despite all this, you can't help but like anyway.
I found myself wondering, at one point, just whose behavior was being modified here. The convict's? Or Walt and Darla's? It's an interesting question, but don't look to the author to provide an answer to that and the many other questions swirling around Jack Weiss. Look, instead, for an attention to the minutae of characterization that is uncommon. I guarantee you will think about how you'd answer the many questions about Jack Weiss.
