A good Kay Scarpetta story. It had enough depth of character and plot twists to keep my rapt interest. And, for series readers, relationships change and natural aging happens with the familiar characters.
I listened to this after The Davinci Code and, while I enjoyed the same nonstop pace and interwoven history lessons, I found this and The Davinci Code a little too much like television: flashing from scene to scene without much literary pause to reflect in depth on the characters' history, motivations, and morality code.
This story goes nonstop. I was pleasently surprised with the art and cultural history woven into this modern tale. It definitely keeps yoou on the edge og your seat.
I read this series to my children years ago and loved it. Now, that a "major motion picture" has been made I was delighted to hear this first in the series again:C.S. Lewis really knew how to hook a listener. This is great story telling. I'll be interested to see how the movie measures up in my students' eyes.
