That is not to say that this novel is completely without heart wrenching moments. Around the middle of the tale, a line born of the Linders' grieving brought tears to my eyes: "Once, his father found Chase still driving in fence posts at ten at night, after dark, and when he told him to stop, his big, tough, handsome son bent over the top of a post and sobbed." That line, acutely real, clearly illustrates how we often use work to postpone inevitable and necessary emotional breakdowns that pre-empt the healing of grieving hearts.
The ending is certainly suspenseful and shocking enough but the elements of the mystery don't begin culminating until the final scenes. By that time I was more than ready to call it quits with this one.
