This book is the 10th in the Kay Sacrpetta series and while I usually say these books can be read as individual novels, I think this time around you need to read them all just to make aense of things that happen.
I have always enjoyed Patricia Cornwell’s books but I have to say that this one was a slow burned and took a while for me to get into.
While I enjoyed the unique sense of the case, and the return of the most beloved and annoying characters. I just felt that the book was quite maudlin and self pittying which git annoying after a while.
As this has been the first book of Cornwell’s that I haven’t massively enjoyed I will still continue on with the series and see what happens to the characters I enjoy so much.
This story is worth a read, especially if you are a fan of the series so far. If you are a beginner to this series then go back and start at the beginning!
