Haunting, provocative, and a tense, alert experience. Yes, there is the pleasure of piecing bits together, of seeing why crimes are never solved (evidence burned, taken as a keepsake, lied about), of uncovering layers -- which is brilliantly done. But then there is the sadness of all those imperfect but intense relationships -- and the questions they generate, fail to answer, and leave you thinking about, aching over. Well done! I wish I had written it!
