The main character's name is Lance, so that was a big plus. Usually I read slow but I went through this one in a few days. There's lots of exploration into the American cultural psyche beyond a typical mystery or thriller. I read until I fell physically ill into a torpid reading coma.

Compelling little novella full of twists and turns, and a nice surprise bonus from Book of the Month. Thoroughly compelling!

Super interesting narrators! I really enjoyed the ‘cool girl’ part and to be honest I think this was (is?) quite influential to the genre.
