Review: This is a mystery novel. Usually I like mysteries, but this book wasn't that great. It took me a while to get through it and I almost gave up on it. There were so many characters and the story was told from many people's viewpoints. I was happy to find out that I had guessed correctly on who killed Lisa but it was sort of a lucky pick. Either I missed the clues that were mounting against the killer, I didn't care enough or Hart hadn't included anything to really point to this person. But, hey, I finished it and I can see why my library sold this book to me for a quarter or less.
