Review by: C. J. Berry on Jan. 16, 2013 : (no rating)
This is a solid, well-researched piece of journalism. You get to know everybody involved on a human level. Duggan doesn't pump up anything for maudlin drama. She builds up the atmosphere, the people's personalities, the stories within the story very naturally. And no typos!
