"Dr. Kay Scarpetta is working a suspicious death scene in Cambridge, Massachusetts when an emergency alert sounds on her phone. A video link lands in her text messages and seems to be from her computer genius niece Lucy. But how can it be? It's clearly a surveillance film of Lucy taken almost twenty years ago. As Scarpetta watches she begins to learn frightening secrets about her niece, whom she has loved and raised like a daughter. That film clip and then others sent soon after raise dangerous legal implications that increasingly isolate Scarpetta and leave her confused, worried, and not knowing where to turn. She doesn't know whom she can tell - not her FBI husband Benton Wesley or her investigative partner Pete Marino. Not even Lucy" --… (mais)

I used to love Kay Scarpetta, in fact, I might have to go dig out some of the old books just so I can remind myself of how much I loved her. Doing so might actually help me forget the past few monstronsities about her. These books used to be about finding a killer and using science to do so. Now everything about this series is "what is Kay thinking about and how will she get over the horrible things that have happened and will continue to happen to her". THIS FORMULA ISN'T WORKING CORNWELL! And what the heck... why wasn't the ending of the previous book addressed. Something about a shot going off while Scarpetta was sitting in a tropical place outside on the porch of their rented cabin... Am I just imagining that part happened? Or was Kay perhaps imagining since she had just going through some pretty heavy stuff... Maybe some PTSD going on?

Aside from the not working formula and spending too much time in Kay's head versus solving the crimes at hand, the details in these books have become sooo completely unnecessary. We could cut out roughly 30 words per page and you would still have the same story and you wouldn't feel so bogged down by the lack of story. For example, "I stepped into the shade of a dogwood tree." Seriously? Who the eff cares what kind of tree it was, and why does it matter where you are standing? She is having a "psuedo" conversation with Lucy and Marino. And I think we all know what I mean by psuedo since Lucy and Benton can't have real conversations with anyone about what is going on in their lives. That entire sentence was completely unnecessary and doesn't help to move the story forward, nor does it help me visualize anything that I care about in the story either. My reading experience isn't aided by her descriptions. In fact, my experience is quite frankly slowed down by her descriptions.

And on a different note, this book takes place over the course of about 12 hours. Cornwell has written another Scarpette novel in this format and I don't think that one turned out very well either. The lack of setting changes and slow time movement irked me. We are quite literally halfway through this book and we had only had one major scene change.

I'm not sure I can handle another one of these books if they are ALL going to be in this style. Go home Cornwell and please rethink your delivery style and plot. How on earth does this book have a rating of 3.55 on Goodreads?!? ( )

Worst one of the series I've read. I won't read another. The book gets tedious. I kept reading because I had some desire to know what happens. It was frustrating because there was very little resolution of the storyline. I feel the author was just setting up for the next book. ( )

Another slow sluggish trek thru Scarpetta's head. Half the book was a another study in dialogue between her and Marino. Glad it was a quick read. Not sure if Patricia is going thru a dark spell but there is nothing uplifting about her books in the last few years. You don't even get a feel good when they kinda solve the case sort of not. Will think twice about getting the next one. ( )
