4 journalers for this copy...
The author shows the depth of love between John and his wife, who struggles with bipolar manic depression. The emotions of those characters ring true and not saccharine which evokes empathy for them.

Thanks so much for bringing this book for me! I`m going to save it for summer reading on my lawn chair.
I am going to have to buy my Dad a copy of this book - I thought it was pretty cool when I read the acknowledgements at the back of the book that the author consulted several professionals in the course of writing the book and I recognized one of the names. My father is friends with one of them - Dr. Felix Sperling of University of Alberta - cool! What a small world!
Thanks again for sharing this with me, rureading - it made a fantastic summer read!
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did - I think Giles Blunt is a fantastic mystery author!
Here is a small quibble: one character, who demonstrates at least average intelligence, knows that she was a victim of a murder attempt, and that if the would-be murderers know she's still alive, they'll stop at nothing to finish the job. She understands that she's been sequestered to prevent just that. But then she gets bored... and wanders around town, asking about getting in touch with drug dealers, just to make sure she attracts the wrong attention. Blunt's intention can only be to add extra drama to the climax. But really, the book already has plenty of drama and tension, without adding such a pointless extra twist.
This is in the category of books too good for wild release. DrSlump has already said he wants to read it, so it goes on his side of the bed now. After that, I'll take it to our next Twin Cities meet-up so another appreciative reader will have a chance at it.
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
This was quite good. A little gory at one spot, (describing religious habits of a perpetrator), but taut, intriguiing and a satisfying ending. I even got the feeling of how bad the blackflies couod be in a wet spring.
