another fast-paced book by this writer. hard to put down. a little far fetched in the breadth of the crime.

Well written and an interesting insight into the world of forensic science, but I found the ending a bit too contrived in terms of the "mandatory book ending suspense scene" ...... though the killer's identity is a real surprise.

It's a good mystery book. Hunter is bit too introspective but otherwise the book creates tension and you can't really guess whodunnit.

When I first read the blurb for this book I thought I'd discovered a new author for me to devour. Although somewhat interesting in the technical details of forensic anthropology, it just didn't really grab me as much as I'd hoped.
