Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings.
This was as intriguing as the book that comes before it. I liked all the twists and turns and the characters who seem like minor ones, turning into major ones. I like the undercurrents that flow between the characters and how she pulls all the threads together in a convincing way. Patricia Cornwell is definitely one of my favorite authors.
