A VERY tedious read
Reviewed in Australia on 12 September 2019
To say that I was disappointed with the book is to say nothing. I picked a Patricia Cornwell book after years of abstinence. Her previous books were so masterfully written that they left too much of an impact on me, they were rather gruesome and I started having difficulties sleeping after reading them. This time I had nothing apart from boredom and annoyance. The book is so overdrawn, and mostly reads as an educational material written for kids. There is no real suspense or drama, but long-winded description of "science" and "technology". If I wanted those, I would've picked up a book written by a subject matter expert.
I just finished reading the book only to try to get to the end of the story and guess what, there was none. Would I ever pick a Captain Chase book again? No way!!! If I could I would've given less than one star
