Frey writes a complex detective novel and seems to have a grasp of Northern Wisconsin rural culture--though at times it could just as well be rural Alabama or Texas. But he clearly knows little about police work and procedures. He has a guy who is a former police officer in a large city, Minneapolis, and then a Captain of the Wisconsin State Patrol in Madison, but he bumbles around like Barney! He keeps his gun in the glove box of his car and has to fumble for it and jack a round into the chamber when he wants to use it. And what's with a police officer in uniform having to pull his wallet out to show his badge?!!! It should be pinned to his shirt or jacket! Frey also obviously doesn't know the position of a county sheriff. He has the main character being afraid of being fired by the city council. He clearly doesn't understand that a sheriff is an elected official and can't be fired by anyone other than the voters not electing him next time. He is a COUNTY official, not a city cop! Sheriff Summers clearly needs some time on a psychiatrist's couch for all the internal issues he's dealing with. An earlier reviewer commented on the shadowy image of his wife, and I agree. Trying to get an image of her personality is like trying to photograph a Will-o-the-wisp. Lots of allusions made to Summers' past background with the Minneapolis PD and the Wisconsin Patrol, but the dots are never connected. An interesting book to listen to in my car's CD player when I'm bored by the traffic, but I'd never bother actually reading another Frey book.

Absolutely great story!! Got involved in the plot right away and kept guessing how things were going to fall out. Let me tell you--the ending is worth the listen!! Surprises all the way through!! 9 out of 10 for me on this one.

The main character who is supposed to be the "hero" is particularly nasty, immature and unlikable from the beginning. He terrorizes his wife by first choking her and when that does not work, putting his service weapon to her head as she is "obviously" to blame for his infidelity. She is so jealous of his ongoing affair with a beautiful rich girl, he has no choice but to cheat because she blames him anyway. I stopped listening after 1.5 discs as I was positively hating the main character for being a jerk and a colossal moron.
