Reviews

"Scarpetta's current case, Lucy's troubles with the Feds, and Carrie's spooky blast from the past are all on an inevitable collision course, and Cornwell shows surprising restraint in reining in her plot and keeping it tightly focused on her well-developed core characters."--Publishers Weekly
"Dark and cleverly plotted."--Booklist
"Another gritty, world-weary tale of mayhem by masterful mysterian Cornwell. . . . Terse and tangled, messy and body-fluidy, and altogether satisfying."--Kirkus Reviews
"Dr. Kay Scarpetta, who keeps us coming back to Patricia Cornwell's sprawling crime novels, is one tough broad. . . . Once Scarpetta decides to ferret out Lucy's secrets, the novel becomes more of a psychological thriller..."--New York Times Book Review
"Heart-stopping, paranoia-fueled, propulsively readable, viscerally suspenseful, disconcertingly shifty... Cornwell's demonic plot shifts and changes almost page by page, so the reader's spun round not knowing what to believe... This intense rush of a mystery will keep you guessing up until the very scary conclusion."--Providence Journal
