This was the first Scarpetta novel for me, and I should have started closer to the beginning of the series. There were relationships and undercurrents I couldn't appreciate as they'd started in earlier books. So I'd recommend starting at the start...
Speaks too slowly.
None were believable or enjoyable.
This book was more difficult to get through than Bleak House, Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, and Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire... Not because it was long, but because it was mind numbing in its predictable affected tone. From the first to the last it was just awful.
This might have been a good listen, but I shut down when the narrator has trouble regulating their breathing and they gulp air. Might I suggest quitting smoking? Listen to a piece of this before you buy, if the sound of the narrator doesn't bug you Patrica Cornwell is a good author.
