This is a soap opera-ish mystery. A man is murdered and his son finds out that his father may not be exactly who he thought he was.
Harry is a somewhat hapless, very recent college graduate who discovers unsettling things about his Dad and his stepmother.
The book does an now and then type of flip flopping. We get current behavior in the now and the back story in the then. It sounds cumbersome but it works.
Several murders, a set of attractive twins, a hapless college grad, a sex offender, a model and a psychopath provide a wealth of characterizations that Swanson manages well.
I enjoyed the book and recommend it.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
