A very good stand-alone mystery. Small town, very rich and very poor folks, everyone has a past and a motive, and there's a lot to wade through to solve the 20-year-old crime. Totally satisfying in every way from the unvoiced crush to the marvelous Hannah, my favorite character.
I read this a while ago, so I don't remember much about the story. I didn't think it was anything that really stood out otherwise I would have continued with this author.
I really like Carol O'Connell's prose. Its spare and pragmatic but still evocative. I imagine it as a survivor of the dust bowl with a thousand mile stare.
