Almost invisible to the people who pass him every day, the grocery lists he collects, written on everything from cancelled cheques to mortgage statements to office stationary, give him a personal hold over those who both ignore him and unwittingly disclose facets of their lives to him. In his 50s, Walt says he was abandoned by his now-missing wife Mary. When a new cold case squad is formed in St. John's to look into Mary's disappearance, the detectives begin to realize that Walt may be involved in more than just his wife's disappearance.

I thought this book was getting good around page 50-60, but it didn't. The narrator's obsessive rambling isn't even a bit interesting and I keep waiting for something to "happen" as my mind wanders off the page. I can't read more than a page or two at a time, that's how bad it sucks. I'm dumping this one.

I'm not sure at what point this book becomes "a thriller" - I slammed it shut out of boredom and frustration after about 100 pages. Disappointing. The synopsis sounded promising.
