This book was hard to get into and Faulk's doesn't make a good crime thriller writer- if that's the book's genre. The plot is good towards the middle, but even after the explanation at the end, the first parts seem uneccessary.
His other books are far, far better.
Still its ok and once you get towards the end you can become absorbed. For me though, the plot needs a lot of patience to understand and personally, i don't like that in a book.
