Patricia Cornwell is not one of my favorite thriller authors: but the forensic approach is interesting as is the international flavor. The killer is too savage, her view of the world too cynical, corrupt and I don't care for the demonic stuff.

I couldn't get into this, called a "mystical book," and maybe that's why. It is about a modern black community's relationships with a ghost. Or maybe it's the hostile environ they must face in San Francisco's Divisidero area.
