This was my first exposure to Kathy Reichs and I wanted to like this book, but I found it hard to follow and I just could relate with the characters. I found the writing to flow very well and I felt there was just way to much information and made the chapters so long. I have to admit that there were times that I found myself asking questions and wondering if I could finish this and I must say there were times that I was about to give up reading this. I did push my self to continue with it. I did feel that the ending was wrapped up quite well. I love to read this type of writing, but I found this authors writing style different from I have been reading. I may look into reading another one of hers, just to see if they are all thing this. I know that each of us may have different reviews of this author, and this just how I feel.
