She and her team track the odd connections between several horrific crimes. This book doesn't work too well in audio form because there are too many POVs and the dialogues lack tags, so it was difficult to figure out what was going on at times. ( )

Scarpetta, now freelancing with the National Forensic Academy in Florida, digs into a case more bizarre than any she has ever faced, one that has produced not only unusual physical evidence, but also tantalizing clues about the inner workings of an extremely cunning and criminal mind.

She and her team --- Pete Marino, Benton Wesley, and her niece, Lucy --- track the odd connections between several horrific crimes and the people who are the likely suspects. As one psychopath, safely behind bars and the subject of a classified scientific study at a Harvard-affiliated psychiatric hospital, teases Scarpetta with tips that could be fact --- or fantasy --- the number of killers on the loose seems to multiply. Are these events related or merely random? And what can the study of one man's brain tell them about the methods of a psychopath still lurking in the shadows?

Scarpetta, Benson, Lucy, Marion — all mixed up — girl/guy McLean predator— police etc. little bit of everything — left open ends for next story

Patricia Cornwell has done such damage to all of her main characters that I think she must really hate them. They aren't evolving, they're corroding! Kay has become a wimp, Pete and Lucy have become caricatures of their former personas, and Benton has even less humanity than before. to top it off they ALL whine. I don't know where Cornwell is going with this, but I hope she will restore them to their former happy, likable, if somewhat neurotic selves. I don't like the change in Scarpetta's personality. Also the novel ends abruptly. ( )
