But as long as you suspended questions about such things, there was lots of suspense and intriguing characters to keep you guessing and mystified. Sometimes the final explanations were just a little disappointing.
WARNING, SOME SPOILERS AHEAD:
-I felt it was a stretch that the American detective who came to investigate the family's disappearance just happened to bring along the one officer who was dating the one border guard who was in on the plot, and rather than go through official channels to get a picture of Wallace crossing the border, she decides to go through the 'friend/lover' at the border patrol so she got the 'doctored' picture. That's a lot of conveniences.
-I felt it was a stretch that Wallace's best friend just happened to be related to the baddest Native American in the world with an entire secret organization who just happened to decide to help a hated white man because his cousin asked. He helped Wallace sneak across the border, and also find an illegal arms dealer who was happy to help, too, compromising his life if Wallace decided to talk.
-It seemed unrealistic that the Canadian police would not access every credit card Wallace owned to find him when he bought supplies.
-MAJOR SPOILER: How could highly trained and cold blooded killers expect to get Wallace put in prison for life by using "dog blood" to make the police think he'd murdered his family? Why not just go ahead and really murder his family?
All in all, I felt it was an okay read, but kind of irritating and disappointing. If you don't mind violence and gore and stretching things quite a bit then you may enjoy this one. It was actually an interesting concept that kept me guessing.
