The author's story telling is getting a bit better than her first two in the series, although sometimes I really have to wonder if an M.E. has this much excitement in their jobs. I guess I've never thought that they would be doing so much detective work out in the field as Scarpetta does.
Kay is also starting to grow on me and not make me roll my eyes as much as usual with her egoism. If this continues into future books is yet to be seen though.
And, a spoiler alert. I can't believe that after how warped Mrs. Harvey acted throughout the book that no one thought to watch her when the suspect was released on arraignment for the minor charged he had gotten caught for. It was like everyone who came into contact with this grieving, yet crazy, woman was blind. I can't believe no one thought she'd pull a vigilante justice like she did.
Overall, good story, though and looking forward to the next one.
