    You up for playing poker this weekend, John? Your place, obvs.

    I agree with you 100 percent on the propulsive narrative of the 36-hour day. But...


    ...the fact that it didn't tie into the original case was somewhat disappointing to me. I loved the book overall, and am a huge Connelly fan, but something just didn't sit well about that.

    Anyone else have similar thoughts or want to tell me why I'm an idiot for thinking this?
