As is clear from my earlier reviews, I've thoroughly enjoyed the previous five Cork O'Connor novels. In this one, Krueger takes a turn toward the darker side. A new character is introduced and she obviously poses possibilities for Cork that have nothing to do with the mystery they're trying to resolve. Some readers probably won't like the suspenseful end--about which I can't say any more. I enjoyed the book, but some of the character description is a bit problematic; the picture painted of the Jacobys bothered a friend of mine and I think I understand why. One thing for sure; I quickly bought the next one.
