Publisher's Summary

Four young women have been found murdered—tortured and strangled in their own beds—all victims of the same brilliant monster. Using a skilled hand and the latest technology in forensic medicine, Kay Scarpetta begins the process of gathering the microscopic clues the latest battered body has to give.

    "Good but not great"

    I really did enjoy listening to this book so much that I couldn't wait to get back in the car and finish it but once it was over I kept thinking did I really like it that much or was I just ready for it to be over. I am torn on this one. I just can't make up mind on this one which is why I gave it 3 stars.

    I found the bad guy very amazing up until the end and then I found him to be very underwhelming. I did love the science (well my idea of science) on both sides -- the computer side and the medical side. I also found her niece very annoying and felt they were tiptoeing around her about everything so she wouldn't get upset.

    The narrator did a good job on the book and the characters and I have to admit I have heard other books in this series but I felt the author kept the characteristics of the characters that I enjoyed in some of the later books. They sounded like the characters I already knew except the character of Benton which I found this version different than all the other versions I have listened to.

    "Narrator kills the story"

    Do yourself a favor, if you are starting the series READ this book. The narrator makes some key characters extremely difficult to listen to.

    "Narrator could be better!"

    Love Patricia Cornwell and the story and I will continue to listen to the whole series. The narrator could definitely had been better. I think more would like this if the narrator was better!

    "Could it get more graphic?"

    Somehow listening to the graphic descriptions is harder than anticipating it in the book and skipping over it.

    "Terrible quality recording"

    Skipping, blipping in the recording. Is the author always this racist and homophobic? Hideous homophobia laces this book, I don't recommend it at all.
