Pretty terrible. If it's written by Patricia Cornwell, and not a Kay Scarpetta story, stay far far away! ( )

Wow, that was a quick read! Finished this book in a single afternoon.
Comments? Nice book, easy to read, straight forward detective/mystery that I liked.
Good read to relax, not demanding at all. ( )

It's been a while since I've read anything from Patricia Cornwell, and, I have to say, this book was somewhat surprising.

For instance, I was halfway through the book and was still trying to discern the plot of the book. The story unfolded slowly, allowing the reader to familiarize him- or herself with the characters, and it was done so smoothly and was so well paced, you found yourself turning the pages quickly to see where everything was headed.

The Front centers around an old, unsolved murder of a young woman. An ambitious D.A., Monique Lamont, has her own agenda when she assigns Win Garano, a state investigator, to the case. What are her reasons for digging up this case? Win is not too thrilled to be pulled into it, especially when he finds that he will be working the case with Stump, a Watertown detective.

A quick read. At the end, though, I was found wanting more. It was well written, I really liked the characters, and I could have kept reading for another 100 or 200 pages. ( )

Audiobook. Ugh, Kate Reading narrator. Least favorite narrator I've ever heard =( Hope I can still enjoy the book, otherwise I might have to just go ahead and read it myself.

Didn't like it. I will stick with the Scarpetta series that I love. ( )
