Slow, boring plot. The Cornwell of old is gone. I have been a big fan of hers for years, but its time to move on.

I hadn't read a Patricia Cornell book in several years, just lost interest and got involved with other authors. I was looking for a nice long mystery download, and thought I'd try an author I was already familiar with. I kept waiting for something even slightly compelling to happen, and even through the "climax" of the story (utterly predictable), it was one long snooze. So disappointing, the book was just formulaic and boring from beginning to end. And why get "little people" involved? How was that relevant? Ihe "Shrew" character was confusing, I nothing seemed to connect to anything else , everyone seems way too forgiving of an attempted sexual assault, the book was a mess. I think Cornwell has completely run out of passion and fresh ideas, and possibly had a hefty mortgage payment coming up. What a disappointment and waste of a selection.
