really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, crime-fiction, mystery

lovely ending. i liked the twists and the turns, i loved lucy (as always), and marino, and benton didn't annoy me.

i loved that it was set in new york, i thought the whole temple gault thing was resolved very well - but in a way that didn't wrap up the series or put too big a bow on it.

really great work, a usual. there's just a little something missing that makes it not quite the level of a deaver or a gerritsen, but it's definitely above the johansen's and connelley's.

basically, from Cruel and Unusual to this one, it's one long story. and it's a really good one, and one that i'm glad cornwell took the time to develop and work through. i loved the sort of dissolution of kay scarpetta, and the psychological toll it takes on her. the scene where she counseled her staff member on PTSD was really fabulous for me.

so glad i have so many more to read!!
