In Alberta, Canada, an eminent paleontologist disappears from a dinosaur dig site, and at the Cambridge Forensic Center, Kay Scarpetta receives a grisly communication that gives her a dreadful reason to suspect this may become her next case. Then, with shocking speed, events begin to unfold. A body recovered from Boston Harbor reveals bizarre trace evidence hinting of a link to other unsolved cases that seem to have nothing in common. Who is behind all this? And whom can Scarpetta trust?

Well I must say this book sandbagged me completely, I think it was well thought out and nicely wrapped up at the end. Nascar!! Who would of thought she get a story around that. Now on the next. Only thing I missed was Ryan not being around but it was brilliantly narrated.

An underground chamber is exposed in a seedy, dilapidated house with sagging trim and peeling paint…In the dark cellar, a ritualistic display is revealed. A human skull rests on a cauldron, surrounded by slain chickens and bizarre figurines. Beads and antlers dangle overhead. Called to the scene is forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan. Bony architecture suggests that the skull is that of a young, black female.

I've been reading/ listening to this series in order to see how Kathy truly draws you into certain characters.. Its so sad one character exits but brilliantly done and then comes the twist. I do hope she sticks with a certain character and not the other. no spoilers. not one book can truly say has been flawed .remarkable

Under the microscope, the outer bone surface is a moonscape of craters…‘Preliminary diagnosis?’‘Deformity of the bone. Maybe. Cortical destruction on a metacarpal. Maybe. Localised infection? Systemic disease process? Postmortem destruction, either purposeful or natural? A combination of the above? I don’t have a diagnosis…’

I was a late Lee child fan and read the first and was totally in the story, the second is no different.whilst there many authors who have used the character ,there is only one Lee child and only one Jack reacher!!!

the nearest I would say who truly is on a par is mark Dawson...but reacher just know the story is gonna drag you in and keep you gripped. my only gripe is I always prefer dick hill narration of his stories.

A rash of horrifying crimes tears through the city, throwing it into complete chaos and terrorising everyone living there. Immediately, it becomes clear that they are not the work of an amateur, but of a calculating, efficient, and deadly mastermind.

as an Patterson fan, but mainly Alex cross and wmc series. this is a great series and found it excellent. I'm not a fan of some of his churning out, but three guaranteed good series are Alex cross,wmc and the Bennett series.
