    Story
    (723)

    After working one of the worst mass killings in U.S. history, Scarpetta returns home to Cambridge, Massachusetts. Exhausted and ill, she's recovering at home when she receives an unsettling call. The body of a young woman has been discovered on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's rugby field. The victim, a graduate student named Gail Shipman, is oddly draped in ivory linen and posed in a way that is too deliberate to be the killer's first strike.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Those who like to wallow in the depression of the protagonist.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The plot could work for those for whom character is not important. Continuation of past stereotypes & story lines like past books with this weak cast.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Reading’s performances?

    Do not think I could take hours more of her whining narration.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    My biggest problem with this book revolves around one dimensional Characters.Kay is too vulnerable and sentimental to be an interesting protagonist.Benton is too perfect except for melancholia. Poor old Marinio is Falstaff without redeeming humanity. He has degenerated into a foil for the perfection of Kay and Benton.
