A "one-off" from the best-selling creator of the Dr. Kay Scarpetta series, based on the serialisation in the
New York Times.
Moving between the chill of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the sultry humidity of Knoxville, Tennessee, Winston Garano, a police investigator, is instructed to look into a 20-year-old murder case. Although Win reckons there are many more pressing current cases which should have higher priority, he gets on with the task, unaware of the can of worms he will prise open.
With her hallmark qualities of deft characterisation, perfect research, and tense story-telling, Patricia Cornwell has created a novel which entertains, intrigues, and satisfies.
do not, do not, do not waste your money.
This is a RUBBISH book. poorly written and absolutely pointless.
DO NOT BOTHER.
This is a total potboiler and a waste of money. I have bought them all from the 1st Scarpetta novels... this one was obviously a grudge contractual obligation. The plot is thin and disappointing.
Never really gets going - don’t bother
I’ve read quite a few Scarpetta books and really enjoyed them. This one however was nothing like them, poor story line, poor narration. The book never seems to develop any intensity or pace, I assumed the book had finished because I’d reached the end of recording one. Only to start 2 and realise that it had in fact already played. Wouldn’t recommend, total waste of money.
