The Girl in the Woods???????
I enjoyed this book but lost track of all the players! Way too involved in the storyline! I realize that a good mystery needs a cast of characters but this one had so many I forgot about the girl in the woods! A lot of twists and turns.... hard to tell the score without a scorecard! I learned a little about forensic medicine... always a plus when a book read for pleasure can provide a little new information too!
