C.J. Critt is masterful with this eerie Kay Scarpetta mystery. This plot illuminates, more than many novels in this series, the dangers faced by Scarpetta and her staff. Coldly and disquietingly, the medical examiner is isolated physically, while diving thirty feet deep in the Elizabeth River to view a cadaver, and mentally, when faced with reawakened memories of past love. Critt, as usual, delineates Kay Scarpetta; it would be hard to imagine anyone else in her place. The plot involves a military conspiracy and ends at a nuclear power plant. The whole book is a cliff-hanger, and the listener will only draw breath at the end. B.H.B.
