The Dew Breaker has quite a complex storyline with many different players who make their appearances sporadically throughout. Not to mention, the narrator switches back and forth from present day events to memories. At times, I was confused enough to flip through the pages I've previously read. I think its like one of those movies you don't truly understand until you've seen the whole thing a couple of times. But I would be willing to get it from my public library if someone else would like to trade for this one.
