I was totally unprepared for how terrible this book was. It seems that Patricia Cornwell took everything she had written in the past book and books and thrown it away. The venue for this book is Charleston, Kay moves around more than a military family! Where, as usual it seems she's unwanted. The first thing that gets me is Lucy, sitting a bar getting drunk and picking up, or getting picked up, by a beautiful woman. Whoa... this is the same Lucy who gave up drinking in the last novel because she could see how it wrecked her life, not only is she drinking she is is smoking weed as well. There are other things underlying this change but it's an incredibly jarring change in a woman who normally is so much in control. Then there is Kay, she and Benton always have their ups and downs but this book is more up than down which is a nice change. And Marino... he's always been a bit of a loose canon but this book pretty much vilifies him. The whole book was jarring in how out of character the characters were. The mystery was good and convoluted but the rest was just terrible.
