Review by: Joan Gross on Aug. 31, 2011 :
This is a great book! It sucks you in from the first page when the murder is
announced and keeps you guessing the whole way through. Clement has a knack
for representing the detail of everyday lives of working class Americans,
from the innocent comments of children to the painful and confusing feelings
of dissolving relationships. She masterfully creates dialogue and situations
that ring true while the story twists around leading the reader to project
various endings before delivering the goods. You won't be able to put it
