This author provides solid, clear language, a steady tone and nice asides that give the main character depth and personality.
The reliance on the stereotypically traumatized Vietnam veteran as a figure of limitless violence offsets some of the clever uses of fake identities and memory loss that make this book memorable.
Liz Helmsley is an appealing, occasionally wordy "old-lady detective" and a cheerful narrator. Many of the secondary characters, particularly Kim and the deranged vet James Johnson, would benefit from the same depth and charm.

The mystery unfolds with little surprises and hints along the way. I didn’t find the ending surprising and I didn’t find any of the characters to be particularly likeable or interesting, which is probably why I found the book to be bland.
The book has a Christian bent to it because there is a lot of praying in it. There is no graphic sex and no foul language in the story. There are a few descriptions of not terribly graphic violence.
