Deputy Chief Virginia West mag und respektiert ihren Chef, Hammer, aber angesichts der Tatsache, dass in ihrer Stadt immer mehr besuchende Geschäftsleute von einem Verrückten ermordet werden, der seine Opfer gerne hellorange anmalt, fällt es ihr schwer, Hammers Edikt zu akzeptieren, dass ein junger Reporter mit ihr auf Patrouille gehen soll, um die Beziehungen zu ihren Bürgern zu verbessern. Ihre schlimmsten Befürchtungen werden bestätigt, als die Reporterin aus Brasilien bei ihrem ersten Ausflug auf den Knopf drückt, um den Stiefelauslöser statt der Sirene zu aktivieren. Er ist nicht der einzige Schandfleck in ihrem Leben: Ihre Katze ist ängstlich, ihre Hormone verhalten sich falsch, ihr Gegenüber in der uniformierten Division benimmt sich wie ein Esel, der Funker ist entschlossen, ihr ein Bein zu stellen, der Staatsanwalt steckt mitten in einem heißen Kampf mit dem Zeitplan der Gerichtsverhandlung. Und immer wieder tauchen orangefarbene Leichen auf ihrem Revier auf.

I picked this up thinking it would be a Kay Scarpetta mystery, and it took me a couple of chapters to figure it out. I enjoyed meeting new characters and found this book to be a refreshing change from the Scarpetta series. The characters were very complex. The budding relationship between Virginia West and Andy Brazil was fun to watch develop. But by the end of the book, I was tired of the constant miscommunications and misunderstandings between them. I get that they are both emotionally damaged individuals, but do they have to keep thinking the other one was using them and/or ignoring them? I also didn't like the way the author kept saying that others thought the main characters were gay, when neither of the were. Is this a particular pet peeve of the author? Still, I really enjoyed this book, and want to read the next in the series. I want to find out what happens to Brazil and West. ( )

enjoyed this departure from the Kay Scarpetta stories. The theme that persisted through this book was the inability of any of the characters to say what they were thinking. They were all so obsessed with their own feelings and images that they missed important clues as to what was going on around them. Even the most honest and sensitive person, Andy Brazil, seemed to be lost at times in his own miserable world and incapable of admitting his feelings.
The serial killer/murder mystery was of secondary importance in this story. The real tragedy was the way intelligent, reasonably likable people completely misread each other's needs and feelings. I actually was hoping to see more of Hammer and West in future stories; as improbable as it might seem to have women in a major city occupying such authoritative positions, it was refreshing to see police work done with a degree of sensitivity.

Interesting first novel of a series. Not bad, but great. ( )

tl;dr-version: do not read do not buy! I am serious!
This was a mistake, I cannot really understand how someone who wrote such page-turners as the first few Kay Scarpetta novels can write such mind-boring drivel.
This was supposed to be a book about a serial-killer. The killer was just on a few pages, the crimes of the killer where ok, gruesome and bloody.
But not enough crime, the book read like a drive-by-shooting.
Every single person who popped up got a background-story and a few or more sentences what they where thinking. Sounds awesome?
Go watch your dryer tumble your clothes, that holds more suspense in the outcome.
Top that with even the cat (!) of the main female character (I dare not call her heroine) getting a background story and a few thoughts towards solving the case.
And the persons all have personal problems, which are sometimes way too much and not every interesting.
Not one character was really likeable - maybe with the exception of the cat, I can understand that she feels frustrated that no one understands it.
And as with other books by her, the end was as expected.
Reason I finished this book (although 2/3 in Fast-Forward-mode): I read a few bad reviews where they where turned off by the explicit fetish scenes.
Although that was for entire series, so may be I picked the wrong book, I wanted to see how she integrated that, and hoped for some real interesting fetish (Mo Hayder does this in some of her books).
Given that I stumbled into this knowingly, it is my own mistake buying this book as a Kindle-eBook and paid the normal amount Eur 6,34. Would not take it for free or as a gift now. Even the Kay Scarpetta-Books are better, and I stopped reading them after the 5th book. At least those where all page-turners although formula-written and nearly all with the same ending.
