A very good short story. And, I suspect, a very realistic one. The crime at the center of the story is at the low end of the legal food chain, and doesn't matter much to anyone involved except for the rookie prosecutor who has been assigned to it. There is, however, a bit of symbolic vindication at the end.

The pace of the story is slow and deliberate, and the overall feel is "procedural" rather than "thriller."
