Unfortunately, the plot description is inaccurate; there is only one hit and run victim. The several sub-plots do come together, but as in real life there are no cut and dried 'happy endings' and it leaves the reader vaguely unsettled. Perhaps there has been more character development in previous stories featuring Faraday and Winter; I will give Hurley's work another try.

Not sure what to make of this latest story in the D/I Faraday series. I like Joe Faraday but Hurley has continually cut his time down in the stories while giving Paul Winter more. The Winter character and his crime boss Bazza Mackenzie are quite distracting and nowhere near as interesting as Faraday. In fact I find myself speeding through their parts. The result in this story for me is that the plot was predictable and lame at the best of times. The fake kidnapping that is yawned away and the obvious perpetrator in the cold case made for a Hurley book that was not up to par for him.
