Kay Scarpetta just wants to settle down in Charleston and do her job, but suicide, ritual murder, and sabotage keep getting in the way. A BOMC, Literary GuildR, Doubleday Book ClubR, and Mystery GuildR main selection.
This 15th book in the Kay Scarpetta series focuses more on the relationships of the familiar characters than the mystery. Nemesis Dr. Marilyn Self is back to plague Kay as her new private forensic pathology practice tries to find the links among murders in Italy and Charleston, SC. There are many other hurdles and some surprises along with some inevitabilities. The new locale and a cliffhanger ending show the series is still worth following. Narrator Kate Reading is as familiar to Scarpetta fans as the characters are. Recommended.
