I just finished the book this morning about 3 a.m., sprinted through the last hundred plus pages,haha.. the first thing I would say is a criticism, albeit a small one. I may have missed it but what happens to Fredericka and Izzy? They both seemed cut from the same cloth, selfish people. I think fredericka deserved some jail time because Brady couldn't have gotten it done without her, and she definitely knew something evil was going on and she could have boogied but she didn't. She wasn't under that much control that she couldn't beat feet.. and Izzy does not deserve to get promoted she needs to go back to working uniform walking the beat in winter..
What can you say about Bill Hodges? In a lot of ways I see myself in him, even down to owning only two handguns. Like him I see them only as tools, in fact now that I think about it I have two hammers, and I kind of look at them the same way, simply as tools..
I like how brave Bill was, and the way he put his head down and kept chugging on his case, even though he was very sick.. that's how the old-time cops did it, they just went out and did it because it was their job, not because they're looking for bennies or promotions.. Bill reminds me of Ralph Roberts from Insomnia, they're the same kind of guy.. going to miss hearing what he's up to,got used to it the last 3 June's..RIP Bill..
