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 twenty-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 novella which entertains, intrigues and satisfies.Hide synopsis

After Scarpetta, this falls flat. Call it typecasting but better she should continue with what worked well. Perhaps a little less with the gay bit, but the team of Scarpetta and Marino beat the new game by a long shot.
I found the book rather predictable, the characters one-dimensional and frankly I missed Dr. Kay Scarpetta. It seemed as if Ms. Cornwell had to get something out quickly. There is a cold case to be solved for political reasons and I think you can figure out the rest. The characters were superficial and lacked depth. Ms. Cornwell is a fine writer and I expected more.
This is not a Dr. Kay Scarpetta novel, but it is the same style, and I really enjoyed it! It involves a cold case in Knoxville, TN, near where I live. It reminded a little bit of "Isle of Dogs". She is obviously an animal lover, and works it into the story. I really like that! Patricia Cornwell's books are always full of surprises! I had the audio book on CD and highly recommend it!
