mysteries hide behind the “dispositions” that he left hidden and which everybody wants to find? This is an
excellent thriller, and at the same time, a piercing study about the academic class and law professionals. Stephen L. Carter masterfully handles irony and suspense while dissecting the higher echelons of the Afro-American community in the United States.
