What an amazing book. I’m not the biggest fan of Nora Roberts but this book is amazing. I couldn’t but it down.
If there is one thing wrong with this book is that she tries to keep the Second person who is after them a secret but we already knew who it is.

It's New Year's Eve, the final night of Virginia's bloodiest year since the Civil War, and another poor soul has turned up dead. Ted Eddings, a scuba diver and investigative reporter who was a favorite at the medical examiner's office, is found 30 feet below the Elizabeth River's icy surface. Kay Scarpetta, chief medical examiner for the state of Virginia, can't help but wonder why she received a phone call from someone reporting the death before the police were notified.

The biggest problem with this book is that the characters seem a lot older then they are. It feels like they should be in high school. But it’s a good book.

If you take out all the stereotyped that goes on in this book it would be great, but it’s so hard read. It’s like the writer is trying to hard to play on the politics that it’s going on. I skipped a lot of this book and will return it as soon as I can.
