Classic Cornwell territory with...a sharp political element that will ensure the book isn't on George Bush's bedside table (Daily Express)
Serving up an Ace....Cornwell is firmly back on the money here. (Daily Mirror)
Patricia Cornwell is the queen of gritty, grisly, crime fiction writing and her latest offering doesn't disappoint. Book of the Dead will keep you gripped throughout (Heat)
"The reason we read novels about the forensic investigation of crime is not artistic decorum but a fascination with how things work. This is what Cornwell has always provided, and it is an area in which she does not disappoint." Times Literary Supplement (‘Hannibal Lecter, eat your liver out. Tersely written, elaborately plotted and crammed with research, Cornwell’s writing has always been hard-boiled - but this one would crack a paving stone if dropped.’)

The murders and crime story were much more carefully thought out and interesting, and there was an attempt to get the main characters into a more engaging story but it didn't work.
For no reason they've all moved to Charleston and you have to bond with a new life and set of circumstances, that takes a lot of effort, but not only that there was an attempt to bring back an old celebrity as an almost 'cameo' character. It was still very confused and there are a lot of threads left untied by the end that was a bit frustrating!
This is a good one to read for the 'who dun it' factor, but you will be left disapointed by the obvious boredom Cornwall now feels for her main characters, and her desperation to give them some kind of story line.
