I didn't like this book as well as I've liked the previous books in the series, by far. I guess my greatest frustration lies with the issues I seem to always have with Marino. How on earth did someone as ignorant as Marino seems to be ever become a detective??? There was so little logic in so much of the book. Scarpetta seemed to be the only one in the book able to figure anything out, which was silly. She is a ME, not a psychic! Ugh. I hope the From Potter's Field is better than this book was!

Very good example of Cornwell's writing. It's okay, but nothing memorable

One new case solved, one ongoing case. Suspenseful and unpredictable, the reader is thrown around and become emotionally invested with the characters

This is the first book of very many of Patricia Cornwells that I have enjoyed. I read it many years ago and it still comes to mind vividly because of the impression it left on me. It was eerily realistic and at the same time shocking. A true page turner!
