The Kirkus reviews just about gave up the details of the novel. The "padding" mentioned by others, were admirable accounts on occupations of the main quartet of characters: an iron worker who tried his hands to run tug boats on the mighty Mississippi hauling coal and crushed rocks, a cold Canadian mob hit man with half Indian blood, a smart real estate agent MILF who no one took seriously, and one young impulsive killer with his older "comfort woman". I would leave out the personality analysis on hand writing and keep the rest, including the smothering mom and the LEOs in the "Witness Security Program.” So, just add some memorable quotes and plan to watch the 2008 film.
