This is my favorite Scarpetta book in the last few years. I finally feel like the feelings from the first handful of books is coming back. The story involved Scarpetta, but also involved things much bigger than her, which I loved. It had felt to me that the past few books were all about Scarpetta, with very little about the cases. That’s what I missed most – her investigating the cases that don’t necessarily have to do directly with her. I wanted the Medical Examiner storyline back and while it’s not back directly in this one – there is much more of that activity occurring.

The relationships between all of the characters continue to stretch, morph, and sever in one case throughout this book. This turmoil has me anticipating the next book already – I can foresee some major relationship drama brewing! I really hope the upcoming drama involves Marino because I am very interested to see where some of the developments that occurred in this story lead.
