Dr. Kay Scarpetta is working a suspicious death scene when an emergency alert sounds on her phone. A video link lands in her text messages and seems to be from her computer-genius niece, Lucy. But how can it be? It's clearly a surveillance film of Lucy taken almost 20 years ago. As Scarpetta watches she begins to learn frightening secrets about her niece. That film clip and others sent soon after raise dangerous legal implications that increasingly isolate Scarpetta and leave her confused, worried, and not knowing where to turn.

I thought this book seemed to drag along compared to all of her other Scarpetta novels. I usually can't wait to get to the next chapter and I read her books to fast because they are that good but this one I found myself daydreaming and had to rewind to see what I missed.😒 I was disappointed and feel like the book is isn't finished .
