Normally I am able to scan through the light prose of a thriller at lightning speed, but the
construction here forces you to pay attention and it is worth the effort.
Her depth of perception and the analogies and similies are a joy and she has a way of describing people and things that makes you not realize that that's what she's doing. Most other writers are painfully obvious about descriptions and it's almost embarrassing.
The characters are built up over time, but all are real without a cardboard cut-out among them. They all have faults, some terminal. The plot is realistic but is a bit tame for such a long thriller.
She keeps good track of a large cast and makes you care about the people and the outcomes, but the book is too long as she starts to repeat themes in the last half and nothing else happens.
The theme of how hard it is for a woman in a man's world is done to death and you feel like strangling Megan the next time she bitches about it: the writer needs to learn less is more!
The denouement is disappointing. We don't learn what has been happening, who else was involved and are left with little explanation. Why do writers spend 500 pages building up to a climax and then spoil all the tension by rushing through the climax in one page?
I don't necessarily consider this story a thriller , but more of a mystery drama. I would like to read the sequel Guilty As Sin as well as other Hoag novels to gain more of a feel for Tami Hoag's writing. So far it works and I suggest you read this book on a hot summer day!
