This story never stops. It's about Bish, a suspended cop trying to discover who bombed his daughter's bus - but so much more than that. He realizes that the quest for truth will take him to past cases he thought solved, and secrets long kept. Melina Marchetta keeps driving the story forward, with more details and more well-developed characters than you would have thought possible. I loved the writing style - there isn't a word wasted, and every detail is important.
