Patricia skilfully wrote this so the reader was presented with a horrific murder and leaves no forensic stone unturned as one by one the tiny pieces of evidence is found.
The characters are interesting and the plot just flows along so you want to keep reading. The interaction between Scarpetta and the other main characters was very enjoyable with some funny moments.
There are some real high suspense moments in this book with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing which makes you hooked on it. I will defiantly read more from Patricia.
