I was excited to get to this book, as I knew it would have psychological aspects to the plot -- which I love. And, it definitely delivered in that respect with several of the characters. What wasn't delivered was the spark or surprise. The police procedural process, the plot (and subplots), the characters and the setting all held together perfectly, and I thoroughly enjoyed and was engrossed in the story, but I felt it just ended on a dull note. There definitely was an ending, and it provided good closure, I just wanted something a little more dramatic. Maybe there was a little too much explaining and not enough doing. I'm not exactly sure, but in the end I still thought it was very good audioread and look forward to next year's addition in this loose series.
