I wish I had read the other reviews before i purchased my copy. This was possibly the worst book Cornwell has written. I was disappointed with her previous book but decided to risk this one. The plot was sketchy, if there was a plot at all and it skipped from character to character without fleshing any one of them out. The investigation by Win appeared to be superfluous to the story, and why were all the characters so abusive to each other yet at the same time appeared to convey a sexua overtone.Not one of the characters rung true and i couldn't understand why they would even bother to talk to each other, lete alone get into each others beds'. I would not recommend this book to anyone and wish Cornwell would go back to her best loved characters ie Scarletta, Lucy etc. I will hesitate to read any more Patricia Cornwell books in the future. What a shame.A good author gone bad.
