I've read other books by Kellerman before The Conspiracy Club and don't remember the weird, herky-jerkey sentence structure. This novel seems rushed, like he plotted out the story but only went back to fill in certain details like the dinner party scene where the over the top language reads more like bad purple prose. When words detract from the story there's trouble afoot.

"She sat right up against him, their thighs laminating." Say what? Their thighs became coated in plastic? Writers try for fresh ways of saying things, but that one is too much.

If you like thighs laminating, and meats arranged like corporeal jewelry, have fun. The mystery's not bad, but aside from one doctor, the characters are blah, especially Dr. Jeremy Carrier, the so-called hero.

Perhaps this book is an earlier effort that sat in a drawer for a while. The words sure read like it.
