7 out of 10

I got this handsome hardcover from the ongoing book-sale at the Whipple Free Library in New Boston, NH, and was glad of another release copy - especially as the mini-series adaptation is airing now!

I read this shortly after it was first published, and thought it decent but not as involving as I'd hoped. The period details are interesting, and the look at criminal investigation and forensics as of that era is, I think, well done, but overall I didn't find the characters that memorable. [And when one of the characters is Theodore Roosevelt, that says something. ;-)]

There's a TV Tropes page on the novel, with some entertaining tidbits.]

I left this book, bagged against the elements, propped up on the railing of the gazebo on the town common on this chilly afternoon. Hope the finder enjoys it!
