Granted, there are a few compelling (and grotesque) moments, and some free ends from past books are eventually taken care of... differently, even though, this can be a murky stew, certainly, with motion careening in method too many instructions. Oh, for a go back to the Cornwell who created the harsh yet weak Scarpetta, who, at middle degree, used her mind and forensic education to resolve a easier secret. Stephanie Zvirin
