I just couldn't finish it. I tried, I really did. But after 65 pages I had to stop wasting my life reading this bone-numbing bore of a novel, filled with characters who have very few redeeming qualities. I've read every one of Patrica Cornwell's novels, but this will be probably be the last. There are so many great novels in the world, I just don't have the time to waste reading such unsatisfying and annoying tripe.
