The pace of the book is excellent, always rushing forward but never leaving the reader behind.
This novel is a fast paced suspense/mystery that had my heart jumping multiple times. The characters are individuals, which I love. They all have their own dialect, their own personalities. One of my favorite characters was Ann, the homeless woman that turns into Ellie's greatest ally, was phenomenal. Tony did a great job of putting us in her shoes and how it might be to live as a person who was dealt one of the bad hands in life.
