For the first third or so I was not having a great time with this book. I thought the whole book was going to be Terry Matiland trying to prove his innocence while some supernatural being snuck around. However, when Terry died my engagement with the book boosted by a hundred percent. All of a sudden it wasn't going to be Stephen King trying out a legal drama, but instead that was just a lengthy intro used to greet us with the detective character. Then when Holly Gibney (the lady from the Mr. Mercedes books) showed up and it became an unofficial fourth book in that series, everything made sense. In the end, I liked it very much, maybe in part because it veered away from territory that I wasn't interested in at all.
