Rated 2 out of 5 by from so disappointed... I have read all of Cornwell's Scarpetta books to this point and I have been unable to put them down. Reading this novel I feel as though Cornwell has sold out. I dearly hope not but this novel made me feel like I was watching an episode of Days of Our Lives (not that I watch that show). It had weird twists that seemed like afterthoughts as if she was just trying to fill her quota of pages. It was not the suspenseful novel that I loved from the rest of the series. In fact I found it difficult to get through. I am hoping that the further Scarpetta novels will not follow in this one's footsteps.
