Goofs

When the judge rules on Alex's environmental suit he dismisses the case "without prejudice." His actual ruling should have been "with prejudice" since the judge's decision was based on the merits of the case and would preclude the same case from being filed again. See more »

Much appreciated
20 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Simple, human-centred writing, honest depictions of the average Janes and Joes, and a Don Johnson coming out of nowhere to tug at my heart strings.

A story into which I could easily place myself, not because of any personal drama of the kind, but simply on account of the next-door familiarity of the characters and their most usual, run- of-the-mill predicaments.

This, without once finding it lacking in pace or boring; a true feat given my short attention span and my intolerance to wasting time. All in all, thank you for this unexpected little gem, Mr. Messina.
