Everything that happens in this book, happens in the first 60 or so pages. The entire middle section is courtroom, legal mumbo-jumbo, action-less stuff. The ending has an interesting twist... but not worth reading the entire middle section just to get to it. I wound up skimming the last half of the boring stuff just to get to the end without missing anything important. I never, ever skim books... but I skimmed this one. If you want to read Chris Bohjalian, read Double Bind. That's a good one.
