spoilers To view it, click here I read this book as part of an interdisciplinary course in law school entitled Law in Literature While the book was acceptable average in terms of its overall plot, development, and color, my enjoyment of the novel came from the fact that until the last half of the book when the protagonist a female detective sleeps with a man she is investigating I hadn t
