I hated this book! Not 1 autopsy in the whole story. This is what I got hooked on with this series. I suppose the scarpetta series has run its course. The narrator couldn't become a different person like the others. I felt like I knew and could see the story. This one was horrible. I have to return it I would never listen to it again. I have gone back and started from book 1 a few times because I loved the characters like they were real and I could see like I was actually there in the room. Ms Cornwall I wanted a year for this book and I'm truly disappointed

I have read every single Scarpetta novel. I am sorry to say the trajectory is still downward and looks to be auguring into the ground at mach 10. In this novel the super-villain woman is back to taunt. The first hour is a recap of the background of the main characters -- yawn. The setting is a murder. I almost shot myself in the face from horrible writing in this scene alone. Sorry to say, it only managed to get marginally better.
The narration is horrible. I only gave it one star because zero was not an option. I will say this once again, unless Cornwell stops taring down Scarpetta and other and focus these characters on EXTERNAL challenges, this series is going no where. I'm tired of inter-family-friendship drama. Let's go get a criminal and let people someone be a hero instead of Debbie Ultra-downer.
Conrwell mailed this in with insufficient postage. I am so disappointed. This is one of my favorite got series. Pass on this one until you can get is for 1.99 or on a two for one.
