Heavy on musing and description.
9 October 2019
(Amazon First Reads – Sep 2019.) I read this on an early edition of Kindle so did not have the (at/distraction?) of the animation or video, etc. As I have not read any of Patricia Cornwell’s books before, I can’t compare this novel with her earlier works as so many reviewers of this book have.
I can say that she is an accomplished writer (even before I read the “About the Author” section). To me there was too much musing by Captain Calli Chase, too much descriptive content (though that was well done). The story finally gathered pace in the latter stages and was quite engrossing as the various leads previously scattered were gathered together but not tied down as this was quite obviously the first of a series of books. I did enjoy the science and NASA parts of the book. I would recommend this to those who like the author to delve deeply into the characters who populate a story.
