Dear Dr. Owens, 

If you are reading this letter, I am dead and I would be most grateful if you could solve my murder...  

Forensic pathologist Dr. Samantha Owens thought life was finally returning to normal after she suffered a terrible personal loss. Settling into her new job at Georgetown University, the illusion is shattered when she receives a disturbing letter from a dead man imploring her to solve his murder. There's only one catch. Timothy Savage's death was so obviously the suicide of a demented individual that the case has been closed. 

When Sam learns Savage left a will requesting she autopsy his body, she feels compelled to look into the case. Sam's own postmortem discovers clear signs that Savage was indeed murdered. And she finds DNA from a kidnapped child whose remains were recovered years earlier. 

The investigation takes Sam into the shadows of a twenty-year-old mystery that must be solved to determine what really happened to Timothy Savage. Nothing about the case makes sense but it is clear someone is unwilling to let anyone, especially Samantha Owens, discover the truth.

Expected better based on reviews. Her previous books in this series are better. Plot was convoluted, not intricate. Characters wavered back and forth between smart and brainless. I didn't enjoy being invited into the minds of the sick serial murderers. Still enjoying the relationship between Sam and Xander.

I am enjoying this series, the writing is getting better. I see the co mparison to Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta - thouigh I think the Patricia Cornwell is still the leader in this genre!
