This was better than I expected (I'd read some bad reviews), but not nearly as good as earlier Scarpetta works. In some places it felt very forced, to be honest. It's worth reading to keep up with the series if you're a fan. If you're not a huge fan though, it probably wouldn't be worth your time.

I haven't enjoyed Cornweill's Kay Scarpetta books as well since she began freelancing. I never got excited about this one,"disconnected."
If you are diehard Cornwell fan you will like it.

Another well written Scarpetta mystery that manages to ask many questions and leaves some of the answers for the next book.

I have read other books by this author, and while not great literature, they've been engrossing and a quick read. I found this one over-stuffed with characters, confusing and just a complete jumble. I kept reading hoping things would all tie together, but it just didn't deliver. I felt as if the ending was rushed because a deadline was looming large. Can't recommend this one.

This one tends to drag on but a must read if you like to keep up with Kay, Benton, Lucy and Marino. A very interesting look into the mind of a serial killer.
