Kay Scarpetta has her hands full in this one. Imagine thinking like a member of an occult, believing in idol gods and applying strategies that beats them at their own games. Too many people are dying. Something can't be right.

"Cause of Death" has a plot that is somewhat hard to follow; a bone-chilling thriller that reminded me of the Harold Robbin's novel, "Spellbinder". It can leave the reader in a ray of confusion and a host of misconceptions, if he becomes obsessed by the believers and their rituals.

Although Scarpetta is unnerved by her niece Lucy's involvement with the FBI's ERF, she has to come to grips with the fact that protecting her is and always will be in the best interest of the people who love her the most. The story was good; not the best of the series so far, but good.
