Moving between the chill of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the sultry humidity of Knoxville, Tennessee, Winston Garano, a police investigator, is instructed to look into a 20-year-old murder case. Although Win reckons there are many more pressing current cases which should have higher priority, he gets on with the task, unaware of the can of worms he will prise open.
With her hallmark qualities of deft characterisation, perfect research, and tense story-telling, Patricia Cornwell has created a novel which entertains, intrigues, and satisfies.

"Cornwell still does it better than anyone else." (Daily Mail)
"Cornwell's books run on high octane fuel, a cocktail of adrenalin and fear." (The Times)
"If you thought Cornwell's corpse-fondler Kay Scarpetta was a tough cookie, you'll crack a tooth on Monique Lamont, a politically ambitious Boston district attourney. Her granite-faced attitude and dodgy schemes make Scarpetta look like Mrs Tiggywinkle and certainly don't endear her to detective Winston Garano, whose career she puts in jeopardy. He is a sexy, clever cop, but only hard-boiled Cornwell could get away with giving him a psychic granny to help out with the detecting." (The Sunday Times)
I'm an avid reader of Patricia Cornwell but, this book was dull, dull, dull. The write up says 'unabridged' but the story is so short and disjointed I find it difficult to believe this is not abridged. A very disappointing waste of subscription.
I've always loved every book written by Patricia Cornwell, but this new series is so disjointed it was very hard to follow.
This series, yes!
disappointment, I expected better
