finished reading

This is the perfect summer noir--there are some funny parts, some intense parts, some mysterious parts--and it's ambiguous who's good and who's not so good. It drew me in and I wanted to finish in one sitting. The ending was kind of disappointing but didn't ruin the story, it just seemed a bit anti-climactic.

From the publisher:
They meet by chance in a local bar in a small town in Delaware. Polly is heading west. Adam says he's also passing through. Yet she stays and so does he--drawn to this mysterious redhead who unnerves and excites him. Over the course of one hot summer, they abandon themselves to a steamy affair. But each holds back something from the other--dangerous, even lethal, secrets.

Summer noir! That's a great phrase and I don't think I've heard it before.
