David: I agree with your analysis. The confession parts of the book are fascinating, but pull the book in a direction away from the type of fiction normally discussed here. That is balanced with the detective's story, which is certainly more in the nature of noir. The two make a unique balance, and the book held my attention throughout. As historicals are hot, I would think this book would have made a bigger splash, and that winning the award would have drawn attention to it. It certainly deserves a wider readership. Best, GWN
