This was a great story-so typical of Patricia
Cornwell; the suspense kept me turning
pages as fast as I could read them. The
ending was a complete surprise to me. I
would recommend this book to anyone who
loves a great mystery!

This is definitely my favorite of the Scarpetta series. It is gripping and kept me guessing- exactly what I like in a mystery novel. I couldn't put it down, and have read it twice already!
