This held no surprises but that was quite nice in a way. Kay Scarpetta has thrown herself into her work after the death of her partner Benton. She is as stand-offish as normal, perhaps even more so, and as in tolerant of others who call her work into question. Scarpetta and Marino discover a body in a cargo ship and after investigation the trail finally leads them to France and Interpol. Of course this investigation doesn't go according to plan - Scarpetta has to deal with a link and a thief in her office, a police boss who is out to get her and her niece Lucy who appears to be as reckless as ever. This book was read out of sequence of the Scarpetta novels and I don't think that makes a difference. Returning to the Scarpetta novels is like returning to an old friend - it is written to a time perfected formula and is good if you just want something to read.
