At the time it was written, this was a stand alone book by Patricia Cornwell - in other words, not about her usual main character, Kay Scarpetta. I stopped reading the Scarpetta books a number of years ago, but decided to try this one. It was very good and well read by Kate Reading. The characters in the book are interesting, and their interaction with each other is well-written. There is now a sequel to this book. If you enjoy this one, you will probably enjoy The Front, also.

Well, I have been a fan of Patricia Cornwell, but this book was a disappointment. I kept waiting for something to happen, for the plot to pick up, but it never did. It also bothers me when an author pretends that a book is a whole book, even though the spacing is at 1.5, there are lots of empty pages, and there is really no story. It's more of a mini book - she left out a lot of words, a storyline that was interesting, and made sure there were a lot of blank pages. It was insulting. And because I have enjoyed her previous work, this was really disappointing, a waste of money, and a waste of time.

I just couldn't get interested in it. Read the first half in an evening and then skimmed the rest. I think Patricia Cornwell's writing career is "At Risk".

Definitely not one of her better works, and I'm usually a big fan of hers. A quick read but I didn't care for the characters at all.

This was written as well as her other books but didn't really get developed. It was kind of short.
