******************************************************* Yes, this is my first experience with Connelly and the plot is so good I have to remind myself to put the book down and go to sleep. The apparent randomness of the of the characters, their inability to control their emotions, and their ambivilance, sometimes downright hostility to each other makes the story so realistic and involving the names bother me less and less as I'm more and more interested in what's going to happen.
