"#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell delivers the next enthralling thriller in her high-stakes series starring Kay Scarpetta--a complex tale involving a serial sniper who strikes chillingly close to the forensic sleuth herself.It's Dr. Kay Scarpetta's birthday, and she's about to head to Miami for a vacation with Benton Wesley, her FBI profiler husband, when she notices seven pennies on a wall behind their Cambridge house. Is this a kids' game? If so, why are all of the coins dated 1981 and so shiny they could be newly minted? Her cellphone rings, and Detective Pete Marino tells her there's been a homicide five minutes away. A high school music teacher has been shot with uncanny precision as he unloaded groceries from his car. No one has heard or seen a thing.In this 22nd Scarpetta novel, the master forensic sleuth finds herself in the unsettling pursuit of a serial sniper who leaves no incriminating evidence except fragments of copper. The shots seem impossible, yet they are so perfect they cause instant death. The victims appear to have had nothing in common, and there is no pattern to indicate where the killer will strike next. First New Jersey, then Massachusetts, and then the murky depths off the coast of South Florida, where Scarpetta investigates a shipwreck, looking for answers that only she can discover and analyze. And it is there that she comes face to face with shocking evidence that implicates her techno genius niece, Lucy, Scarpetta's own flesh and blood"--… (más)

I felt cheated reading this book. The victims, how were they related. I tried to figure out who the shooter was guessing all the way until few chapters left in the book and the BIG REVEAL!! What?? Really?? Then another shocker, "cliffhanger" SNAP! Terrible.

The only good thing about this book is the short chapters. ( )

MUCH better than her last 3... but still a little too much blahbity blah blah blah on the description of how to test ballistics. ( )

A fast-paced novel, with plenty of tension from the first page to the last. An action packed novel that has plenty of detail. ( )

I listened to this as an audiobook while driving. Loved the accent of the man who told us what disc it was and when the end of the disc was. I've read other Kay Scarpetta books but probably not the whole series and not always in the order they were written. I have to say they've probably never been my favorite series--and I'm not really sure what to think of this one.

This book starts off with Kay and Benton planning to vacation for Kay's birthday--a vacation that gets interrupted by a murder--a murder that Marino (now with the police department) thinks is similar to another murder in a different state.

Lucy, who seems to be a difficult character at the best of times, is suddenly trying to push everyone who loves her away. Kay, her aunt, is concerned but for some reason, doesn't really press Lucy on it until the last third of the book.

I'm a little confused as to why Lucy seems to have changed her mind about the people she loves. We find out why she was trying to isolate herself and while the immediate threat is diminished, the person is still out there at the end of the book--but yet it seems Lucy has changed her mind since Janet and Desi are there in Florida with everyone else. Does she think the person will lie low for a while before striking again (as has apparently happened prior to this)?

The end of the book was a bit confusing. The light gets turned off and Kay hears a sound. Does this mean that they all relaxed too soon and are going to be thrust right into another plot? ( )
