Unusual ending

by helenmccraw on Mar 17, 2010

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!


Loved It!

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!
