I have read a number of Connelly's books, most for relaxation and a break from academic monographs and literature, This turned out to be the best that I can recall. The characters were new and more interesting/complex, especially there interactions with one another. The plot was multi-dimensional, so that the readers like the characters are trying to figure out what is happening. It was a real page turner that keeps of reader engaged, anxious to see what happens next. Unlike many "page-turners" I didn't want to skim ahead to get to the end because the detail and portrayals were so interesting.
