At risk
Patricia Cornwell
Adult Fiction CORNWEL

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Cornwell's latest-a stand-alone thriller that was originally serialized in the New York Times Magazine-is likely to disappoint even diehard fans of her bestselling Kay Scarpetta novels (The Body Farm, etc.). This time, the action is set in Boston, where an attractive and ambitious DA, Monique Lamont, seeks to use a new anticrime initiative to propel herself into the governor's mansion. Lamont plucks her top investigator, Winston Garano, from a special forensics course to probe an obscure cold case, but the detective's inquiries suggest that his boss may be playing a duplicitous game. The writing, pacing, characterizations and plot are far from Cornwell's best work, and the solution to the old murder mystery is anticlimactic. (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

From Library Journal:

A Massachusetts district attorney running for governor wants to use some radical new DNA technology to solve a long-ago murder. The result? A new round of violence. For those who can't wait, the New York Times Magazine has begun serializing Cornwell's newest this month. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
