My BookCrossing Rating: 8 out of 10 stars
I liked this one best of the 5 I’ve read thus far. The extra detail didn’t seem to go on as long any more, often just enough to give you a clear picture in your mind instead of cause your mind to wander. The mystery kept me in thrall until the very end, when it all came together in a surprise ending. Kinsey is still a workaholic, but has begun to reevaluate her life and actually thinks about things other than work and her caseload now. :)

At the beginning, I thought it would bother me that Kinsey was framed to look as if she was on the take, because usually when this happens in a story, all the other characters operate under the false assumption that she’s guilty, automatically believing the frame without taking into account that she wouldn’t do this, and in the long run it really screws with everything else in the story. It’s really a pet peeve of mine… Instead, Kinsey and most of the other primary characters worked to find out what was really going on and who had set her up, which led to a much deeper and intricate plot to be uncovered.
