Editorial Reviews

Review

The combination of the theft of religious objects, a fractured family and the issues raised by memory loss and PTSD make for a lively, though not always coherent story, especially toward the end of the book.
 
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.
