Fiction. Mystery. Thriller. HTML:

A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over two thousand miles away in Boston. She has no idea why.

But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist's
disappearance is connected to a series of crimes much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.

When she turns to those around her, Scarpetta finds that the danger and suspicion have penetrated
even her closest circles. Her niece Lucy speaks in riddles. Her lead investigator, Pete Marino, and FBI forensic psychologist and husband, Benton Wesley, have secrets of their own. Feeling alone and betrayed, Scarpetta is tempted by someone from her past as she tracks a killer both cunning and cruel.

i haven't finished yet but I should really just stop buying these books. I was convinced that (at least 5?) some books ago she changed her writing style and it totally turned me off. Then I felt like a few books ago (2?) she changed back to normal. Yet, I feel her characters have just gone off the deep end. I can't stand any of them anymore. Marino turns worse every book, Lucy becomes almost total background and into such a superwoman that she's just completely unbelievable anymore. Now, in this book I have to constantly listen to her inner turmoil over Benton. Ugh, just shut up already!! ( )

I hd minimal expectations and was still disapppintes, especially by the ending. ( )

Every time I finish the latest Scarpetta book I swear them off. But I keep getting them. Thankfully this was less annoying this the last few. I swear it feels like the author delights in making her characters unhappy. ( )

Ah, where to begin? Same old crap about no one talking to Scarpetta, she feels betrayed, Marino is pretty much absent in this entire book, the dysfunctionality persists, Luci's home life is convoluted and murky, Scarpetta laments how no one is forthright to her, the first part of the story about the "bone bed" is seemingly forgotten for the next few hundred pages in favor of a story about a body found in the ocean...there is WAY too much ado made about a trial...and then the last 20 pages seems like the old Scarpetta, with lots of action, lots LESS talking and nebulous stuff...and then slam, bang, it ends just like that. I had to go back a few pages to see exactly what character she was talking about during the ending...I was like "what did I miss?"

I think Cornwell's talent is taking a new direction, and I sure miss the old days when her books were about solving murders, not pages and pages of characters being obtuse, looooong drawn out forensic stuff that is actually boring, and the characters speaking in non sequiter. I also found the discussion of Twitter convoluted and bizarre, as I kept trying to make sense of what they were saying, thinking it was germane to the plot...but it wasn't. Actually, nothing in this book is germane to anything else.

Read it if you must.

The best part for me, actually, was her Greyhound Sock and her newly adopted cat, a Scottish Fold. Cornwell has managed to get my favorite animals into her stories, if nothing else. ( )
