Although I'm generally a huge Cornwell fan, this isn't one of my favorite books authored by her. I'm not sure why, but to me, the writing doesn't seem as tight as usual and the build-up of tension that she's normally so good at just wasn't delivered in this novel.

Hardcover, in excellent condition.

I sent this off to JennyC1230, thinking she had it on her wishlist, but I goofed! Oh, well, maybe she can pass it on to someone else who wants it.

Thank you! Yes, you are right, I have read this one, but I will probably leave it at the local OBCZ since it's such a nice hardcover book. I hate to wild release them when they are in such nice shape!

Thank you for your generosity!

Book #12 in Kay Scarpetta series

Book Description:

"Please don't go there. The past is the past," sighs New York Assistant District Attorney Jaime Berger, who herself was introduced in Cornwell's last Kay Scarpetta novel, The Last Precinct (2000). Alas, many of Cornwell's fans are bound to agree. From the start, however, the formidable author is up against the equally formidable task of getting her charismatic main character off ice and back in action. We encounter Scarpetta languishing in a crumbling little rental house in Florida. She has taken refuge there and become a private forensic consultant after she was driven from her job for her alleged involvement in the murder of a deputy police chief. The violent death of her lover, Benton Wesley, the brilliant FBI psychological profiler, has left her filled with an unappeasable grief. When the coroner in Baton Rouge asks her advice on a cold case concerning an affluent woman found dead of a drug overdose in a seedy hotel, it seems little more than a diversion. Yet it becomes clear that the overdose may be related to a fresh string of serial killings. Also disturbing Scarpetta's somber peace is a troubling letter from someone out to kill her, the sick and obsessed death-row inmate Jean-Baptiste. When Scarpetta is at last allowed to get back to business, she is a feisty, independent powerhouse whose capacity to concentrate and observe rivals Sherlock Holmes's. But too much of this book is bound up in retrospective musings about events in previous books. The great Scarpetta, her fiery crime-busting niece, Lucy, and a colorful supporting cast deserve better.

It takes a little reading to get into the story. As you get into it it becomes much better reading. Not one of her greatest books.
