I am an avid Cornwell fan and would recommend most of her other books, but not this one.
It's downright boring and didn't hold my attention. The story line is very weak and it was difficult at times to follow along. I kept thinking that I must have gotten the abridged version. It seemed to skip ahead and then fill in the blanks with a lot of dialog. It is also very predictable and what you didn't figure out on your own was just told to you in the last 3 minutes.
If you want to experience Cornwell at her best, try The Body Farm or From Potter's Field and then follow Scarpetta - you won't be disappointed.
