Anotehr Kay Scarpetta mystery. Likable but not terribly gripping. I have a hard time remembering which of Cornwell’s books I’ve read because they all have these sort of flat titles that say very little about what the books are about. Thanks to our library catalog, I remembered that this one was about a killer on death row whose fingerprints kept showing up at murder sites when he was locked up and even after he was dead. Scarpetta is on the scene, also celebrating the holidays with her niece Lucy a “computer hacker” of sorts. Good for the airplane and not too gruesome, I enjoyed this, though found it forgettable.
