The death of Roy and subsequent arrest of Billy Fuller, a former employee of Dynatron who lost his wife, house and good friend because of Johnson's betrayal, gives Kevin a reason to stay in his childhood town. His father's deteriorating health keeps him there as the estranged pair begin to work together.
I enjoyed getting to know the characters as the story built in intensity. The main characters were realistically portrayed and though the plot was farfetched at times, it always kept me coming back. The side characters were interesting and definitely showed small town appeal. I particularly liked the woman who ran the diner and gossiped whenever given the chance. What small town would be complete without her?
I would like to think that there are quite a few lawyers like Kevin Wylie around, and I am hoping that Sheehan brings him back in a future novel.
