The different people, their secrets and their intertwining relationships had me from the beginning. I wasn't sure where the author was going when the mafia was introduced but soon learned how much of an integral part of the plot they actually were. This book has a bit of everything for women and men, from unrequited love to gruesome mafia gangland murders.

I couldn't put this book down. I found myself actually liking Ray, even though I didn't want to. The relationships he built were deep and true. His methods, though very unconventional, were viable. Ray had a conscience. He needed to have others forgive him but more than that - he needed to forgive.
