The book starts dramatically at a moment just beyond some sort of trauma about which we learn very little, though there are hints of a conflict. As the book unfolds, we travel back and forth in time between chapters, gleaning bits of information tucked within the well-written details of the story. Clearly, we will know much more by the end of the story, but we are left with all sorts of tantalizing questions leading us to read on. Was Cohen's father murdered? Does he have something to do with it? Why is he so reluctant to report it? And what is the relationship with his father? What are the secrets in the past. The only direct hint we get of the title comes in the connection of the nephew to astronomy but the symbolism appears early in Cohen's thoughts on the reflected light from his father's head. I expect a well-done tale of family relationships that covers years. I think this one could be a good read.
