We once again follow more than one police case from different points of view, each with its own twists and turns. One involves how Jake’s gun was used to kill a homeless woman. And we meet a new character that I hope we’ll see again in the future. Nemo is a homeless, orphaned six-year old, street savvy and compassionate kid who discovers the tunnel that leads to a number of answers. We even get a character that you will enjoy disliking.
The author, as always, does a really good job with interesting characters as well as the slow reveal of details through a number of twists. Even though this is the 7th book in the series, I don’t believe it’s necessary to have read the prior books to get into this one. Other than Sam & Jake’s family life and some past history that’s explained, there isn’t an ongoing back story moving toward some conclusion that would make it difficult to jump in at this point.
Keep some tissues handy; your emotions will run the gamut.
The characters are well written and we're given descriptions, so I had no problems following the storyline, nor did I become bored with it. You feel for what they are going through from little Nemo who lives on the streets with a sense of fairness ingrained in him by his mother. You'll especially enjoy the characters names he gives the different people he meets and how they relate to each other. In addition, we see some of the “gifts” characters possess presented in such a way as they are not seen as a joke. It is something real and without a derogatory stigma.
As for the mystery itself, I was unable to determine the killer with 100% certainty until the end of the story. It has well developed characters and you can see the killer, but you can't. Even some of the characters, such as Alex, have mysteries of their own, which could lead you off center if you're not paying attention.
