A fine rain was falling as Detective Marti MacAlister made her way through the tall grass to the wooded area where the arm had been found. It was cool for early September, and the rain, little more than a mist, felt cold. Marti stared at the hand. The fingers were curled in a beckoning gesture.

Actually a well written, well plotted book. Added this book to my collection while I was working. Probably paid .30 when it was a dotted book. Pleasantly surprised. Fast moving ending although it did get bogged down in the middle.

this had two different plot lines going at once, pretty much unrelated. as one must have been the secondary plotline, it failed in that. the primary one--the police proceedural for body parts--got wrapped up way too suddenly, too smoothly. the secondary plotline almost might have made a better story on its own.

Well written, although a few editing glitches. Good descriptions of place and environ, both urban and rural. Another example of the importance of personal development with the protagonist. Used several POVs, but those elements were well handled.
another good mystery with marti. this one actually comes before "a cold and silent dying," with many of the same characters. i enjoyed the suspense of the hurricane.
