«Les livres de Patricia Cornwell carburent au super - un cocktail d'adrénaline et de peur.» -- The Times (Londres)
From the Publisher
Patricia Cornwell explore subtilement les failles de chacun de ses personnages et entraîne le lecteur dans un tourbillon de conjectures au coeur de New York. Un vingtième roman écrit de main de maître par celle qui a remporté le prix du meilleur roman policier aux Galaxy British Book Awards pour son précédent livre (Registre des morts) et qui célèbre aujourd'hui les vingt ans d'existence de son personnage, le médecin légiste Kay Scarpetta.See all Product Description

I can't explain exactly why, but I have the feeling of an organ grinder cranking out the verbage within a fixed formula, much like a tune on a player piano. There is nothing new here, it's the same old, same old without even any further exploration of the cast of characters.
Perhaps I'm just spoiled by the wonderful writing of the late Steig Larsen or by the likes of Michael Connelly and Ian Rankin. Against this tableau of quality, this novel just doesn't cut it.
I thought Marino's character was sabotaged in the last novel, but so far...this is just plain painful.

As a regular Scarpetta reader, this book wasn't Cornwell's best. And bringing Marino back just didn't sit well with me...Published on March 3 2012 by Kadi Kaljuste
A very brief comment from someone who has read, and enjoyed, ALL of Ms. Cornwell's murder mysteries in connection with Kay Scarpetta: this book is simply not up to standard. Read morePublished on Oct. 10 2010 by Book worm
I like Patricia's books very much but I find this book a bit borring towards the end.Published on Sept. 1 2010 by Mary Norton
