I liked it, but I thought it could use a little more fleshing out to let the reader grow a little closer to the bolos and maybe more question whether Miles had really lost it and was becoming unstable and dangerous.

Also saw one or two typos in part two:

During the conversation before they are going out to apologize to Miles, "Arlan shoved his chair hack and levered himself up on his crutches."

I believe "hack" should be "back."

And a little after that when Arlan is having his final conversation with Miles is the line, '"What land of means?"'

I'm not sure if this is a typo or just the use of the word land I've never heard of, but I think the word was supposed to be "kind" or "matter." or something along those lines.

Yep, you caught us! I actually scanned that out of the book using an OCR program. I thought I caught all the conversion typos, but apparently I missed a few. Thanks for pointing them out!
