Agreed! I have been very interested in this since I heard about it. After your report last week I went to the website to see the previews. I also sent my friends in SF to the Victoria to see it.

The details of the imitation $100 bills, the milk coupons and the Mickey Mouse spoon add depth, as does the conversation with the Sheriff afterward. I am very glad that I am finally reading this book.
