This book held my interest, but sometimes only just. The pace is unhurried, and the author moves around among a large cast of characters, to the point that I will have forgotten the salient points about someone's life or death by the time she gets back to him or her. There is a chilling effect from the story, because even though we know who at least one killer is early on, who the victims will be is not clear at all. Even when we learn fairly early that the killer sees the killings as a moral act, it doesn't help the reader to anticipate them. There are two canny detectives, but they are preoccupied -- not at all what we see in detective shows on TV -- and seem to take a frustratingly long time to catch on to what's happening. If you're in the mood for a story that builds quietly and catches you off guard, this might please you.
