I had a very difficult time with this book, and to be honest I only read the first two chapters.

I found that it was too disjointed as there were too many jumps in plot with little direction or flow. Maybe it's different for the eBook version, but that was my experience.

I used to read her a ton when I was younger and wanted to try one of her newer books. Maybe I will look for a different book that isn't a Scarpetta series and see if I fair better.

Ah, Patricia Cornwell, what an author! This book was a little off key for Ms. Cornwell, at first the reader was confused with all of the characters. You were just trying to figure out one person when the next chapter was of a completely different person with no logical way to connect the dots. In the end, one works hard to figure out what is going on and why. Interesting plot, but just not believable.

unwieldly plot; thin characterizations; and poorly edited. cornwell's use of repetition might be an intentional device, but it's merely annoying
