Blurb: When the body of a beloved schoolteacher is found in a local park, is it a random homicide—or the work of a serial killer thought to be behind bars?Carla Jamison was enjoying a warm summer day at the park near her suburban home—a habit of hers many people knew about—when she took her last breath.Olivia Corfont, forensics expert and coroner, now has a tough case on her autopsy table. Very little evidence and too many questions provide her with a conundrum that leads her straight to Inspector Chet Gavin, who relies heavily on Olivia's powers of observation to notice things he might miss. Chasing down dead-end leads leaves the pair questioning whether the homicide of this popular schoolteacher is the work of a serial killer they thought was behind bars. Or is the murderer someone else so precise he or she leaves behind no forensic evidence? Will the killer strike again? Can Olivia and Inspector Gavin solve the case before there's another victim? Follow the trail and see if you can solve the case.
Review: This was a wonderful little "who done it". I got a little lost with all the technical verbage from Olivia, but I do the same thing watching CSI, too. Still I love the fact that the author took so much time to get all the wording right (as far as I know :) )
Complete with a good SNAP ending when you finally realize who did it, I don't think Ms Patterson could have done a better job if she'd tried.
Ms Patterson, congrats on a job well done. I look forward to seeing much more from you in the future :)
