James W. Hall's Body Language is a so-so thriller with a complex plot line centered around a woman, Alexandra, who as a young teen takes revenge on the neighbor boy who rapes her by killing him with her police officer father's gun. The father covers up for her and then later in life she finds herself taking care of her early-onset Alzheimer's dad while she juggles that occupation with her job as a crime scene photographer for the Miami PD and her own difficult marriage. A serial killer wreaks havoc in the Miami area...leaving his victims in poses which he knows Alexandra will have to photograph. Not much in the way of 'surprises' here even as the cast of characters grows and complicates things, but Hall is a good enough writer to keep things moving along nicely, tying all the seemingly unrelated activity together for a good 'photo-finish'.
