Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The names she gives her characters are different--the brothers, Gerhard, and Fritz, the landlord-whose German name translates to "Old School". There is a neighborhood I used to live in called Lincoln Square in Chicago which was ethnically German and still has it's hold outs. Although her characters are based in a made up town of Webley, a suburb of Chicago, you still can get a feel for the small city feel of the Chicago neighborhoods.
I was quite surprised at the twists and turns this novel took as well, and was surprised at the end, something that satisfies the mystery reader in me.
The one aspect of the book that i think needs a special mention is that the author made her female character strong,
Likeable and totally unique with out making her unlikable! Or even at times pathetic as so many authors tend to do!
