    An unidentified nude female sits propped against a fountain in Central Park. There are no signs of struggle. When Dr. Kay Scarpetta and her colleagues Benton Wesley and Pete Marino arrive on the scene, they instantly recognize the signature of serial killer Temple Brooks Gault. Scarpetta, on assignment with the FBI, visits the New York City morgue on Christmas morning, where she must use her forensic expertise to give a name to the nameless - a difficult task. But as she sorts through conflicting forensic clues, Gault claims his next victim.

    Coooper says: "EXCRUTIATING NARRATOR"
    "A poor reading"
    Overall

    I generally like Patricia Cornwall books, but I simply couldn't stand listening to the reading of this book due to the voice artist's choice of readings. For example, she plays one of the major characters as a monotonic, Dan-Akroyd-in-Dragnet kind of a cop, which might be fine if he wasn't also the protaganoist's lover and needed to show some sensitivity on occassion. Other voices are similary stereotypical and don't display any depth of characters. Normally a lover of audiobooks, this is the first time I've had to stop listening because the reading was SO bad.
