Oh murder mysteries! I needed a quick read for my vacation, so thought I would take a trip down nostalgia lane and read a murder mystery. Back in the day - these were all I read. Mary Higgins Clark, James Patterson, and Patricia Cornwell were my books du jour. Now I never read murder mysteries, so it was a fun experience to jump back into one again. I won't say I didn't enjoy the experience - but I find the over descriptive and melodramatic writing kind of comical now. The plot was a little weird on this one - something about terrorist and plutonium or something but for most of this I was thinking, she's a medical examiner! Why is she leading the life of an FBI agent? It was weird. Of course there was a ton of back-story of her having to work with an old flame, and her up and down relationship with her FBI agent niece. Overall a fun time, but I understand now why I moved onto greener pastures by reading contemporary lit!
