An OK book. 5th in a series. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had read some of the previous ones first.

A truly silly book. I had to make myself finish it.

#37 Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs
A good plot, but more info than I wanted about how to tell one saw cut from another, or a spectrometer reading of a glove.

#39 Black Widows by Cate Quinn
I was anxious to read this book and compare it to The Clinic. Black Widows
was written first. In her author's notes at the end of The Clinic, she said that was the first book she had written sober. Both are well written, I think.
