This is a multi-barreled novel. In one respect, it is a series of character studies that enrich the story. In another, it is the story of a town or more specifically its inhabitants, realistically and convincing described. In a third aspect, it is a mystery, a miracle perhaps: how can the mural -- very large and detailed -- be painted overnight, and how can it be unseen until morning? As I see it, underneath, there is a significance common to us all.
There is a deeply portrayed, finely drawn cast of characters. There is an uncanny mystery, some suspense, and an almost romance. The author understands people; and in my opinion, tells an especially good story. Reviewed by the author of The Children's Story, About Good and Evil.
So who did it? The city's charismatic mayor? The local restaurateur? Maybe the waitress, or the local floundering artist?
You will have to read it to find out. And what about our reporter? Does he find a love interest? Do he discover the story of a lifetime or does he return to the big city still displeased and bored?
You will have to read this and find out, but maybe you will be changed for the reading of it.
A good read, its enjoyment compromised a little by a couple of additional themes that seem to be distraction rather than narrative,and certainly worth the time to read it.
