About the Book
This is the sixth book of Kay Scarpetta’s Series and I liked this book more that the previous ones. I found the first ones too slow especially the very first and too tedious with details.
I still don’t remember where we met Mark, if you read my mini review for the 4th book on Goodreads.com, you’d know that I didn’t remember him all together… I do read a lot of books so maybe that’s why, but it seems that he was quite important… I remember that he was already dead in the previous book so that’s a plus since the last time, but nothing… don’t even remember the bombing (but maybe that happened outside the books).
I don’t like Kay’s relationship with Benton and I don’t understand Marino’s jealousy…
Overall I liked the plot, finally Gault’s story is over (I hope!!) but I find the ending abrupt!
