For me this book really is at it's best when it is about Harriman and his decision to go after his friend. To me, even though he is not in the book as much as Demora, he is the more fully rounded character who captivates my attention every time he is on the page. I'd love to see more stories about him. I think that the ending, even though quick, makes this an above average book. Mainly because it is in an era that has so much richness just waiting to me mined.
