    In Washington, D.C., a homeless man dies in Commander Gray Pierce's arms, shot by an assassin's bullet. But the death leaves behind a greater mystery: a bloody coin found clutched in the dead man's hand, an ancient relic that can be traced back to the Greek Oracle of Delphi.

    Ed says: "Maybe an OK book if you like the word 'feral'"

    I'm a big Rollins fan but I just couldn't follow this story. I'll continue being a big fan though.

    Story

    It is the week before Christmas. A tanking economy has prompted Dr. Kay Scarpetta - despite her busy schedule and her continuing work as the senior forensic analyst for CNN - to offer her services pro bono to New York City's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. In no time at all, her increased visibility seems to precipitate a string of unexpected and unsettling events.

    "Read The Ratings Before Wasting Your Time"
    Overall

    This was the first and last Cornwell book I will be reading/listening to. I could not wait for it to end. I could not keep track of where the character were, what was going on - and what ANY of the dialogue had to do with the actual story...and besides that, what was the story? What was the plot? I kept asking myself while reading this.."what has this got to do with anything?" Sure, I could have stopped reading it, but I heard so many great things about Cornwell - I was determined to give her a fair shake. Not only do I want my money back, but I want the time I wasted too. Sorry Cornwell, I guess you've written good things in the past, but did you read this last story you wrote? It didn't make any sense...I'm sorry I'm so bitter but rarely do I ever feel this way about a book I read. If your character talked to me like that talked to each other...I'd either turn and run away as fast as I could or I'd nod a lot and give them a number to a shrink after they stopped talking in circles about something that had nothing to do with anything. Ugh...I'm so...I'm so...disappointed (to put it lightly).

    The largest known meteorite has been discovered, entombed in the earth for millions of years on a frigid, desolate island off the southern tip of Chile. At four thousand tons, this treasure seems impossible to move. New York billionaire Palmer Lloyd is determined to have this incredible find for his new museum. Stocking a cargo ship with the finest scientists and engineers, he builds a flawless expedition. But from the first approach to the meteorite, people begin to die....

    Lyn says: "Wonderful, Well researched, Page Turner"
    "Excellent Writing"
    Overall

    I am becoming a big fan of Preston and Child - the writing is excellent, the plot of this book is great - the ending blew me away. A high recommendation for this book!
