When is less more?

Lane DeGregory of the St. Petersburg Times does an interesting thing in this story (link at end of post):

At the end of the third section, she drops a big hint of something to come, something to make you want to read on.

What I think is unusual is how and when she decided to reveal what she was hinting at. I don't want to give it away, but let's just say she does less with it than you might expect ... but in this case, less might be more -- more powerful, more of a lasting impact. I'd bet that's what she was going for, anyway.

What do you think?
