a number of victims in several states has killed a person

between the crime and the seven new 1981 pennies she found
on the wall behind her home?
the investigation with a planned vacation to Miami, Kate is
going to discover that a shipwreck off Florida's coast holds
the key to a mystery that will touch upon her own family and
perhaps bring a deadly adversary to justice
readers think Patricia Cornwell went to the well once too
often with this 22nd novel featuring Dr. Kay Scarpetta. Check
online at Amazon and you'll see there are quite a few negative
responses, so you'll have to make the call.
I thought the book was OK but not as good as some of the early
efforts. But then again, the author has over 100 million copies
of her books in print, she has won a whole shelf of awards
and has been writing since 1990. Cornwell is not going to
hit a home run every time she walks up to the plate!
