--- In firstname.lastname@example.org, "davezeltserman" <davezelt@...>
> I read this mostly do to some positive mentions I've seen here. Basic
> plot, three threads involving a bank robber with hopes of escaping to
> Canada to buy a farm and live a quiet life, the narcissistic college
> professor in a small NH town he forces to house him after spying on
> him and seeing this professor having sex with a teenage girl, and the
> dissatisfied FBI agent on the robber's trail. Compelling writing +
> novel, reminded me a lot of Donald Westlake/Richard Stark, but
> ultimately the nihilistic ending left me cold.
