I gave it 3 stars because I'm finding it hard to care about the main characters as much as I used to. I pre-ordered this when it first came out, and it's been sitting on my shelf for the last couple of months because I started feeling this disappointment when I read the previous book, and didn't want to feel that way about this one., About midway through I just started skimming to get to the end. There have been about a dozen books in this series, and the characters have worked together for over 10 years, but they haven't changed at all. About the only difference I see, is that Chapman's good-natured ribbing is taking on a much snarkier edge.
It would be nice to see more about the characters personally, and it would be nice to see them relating to others more. We know that Mercer's married with a son; we got a brief glimpse of them in the last book, but that was it. It's obvious that Cooper is married to her job, but I need to see she's not all about work. I thought after a dozen books, we might have seen her in situations where she would have to struggle to balance work and personal, like most women have to. She's never put anything before work, nor does it look like she ever will, and that's boring to me.
And don't hold Luc up as an argument for her having a social life. All of her boyfriends have been like him, long distance, fly in, fly out, meet here, meet there, blah, blah, blah. Those aren't real relationships. A real relationship is a guy she's seeing that has to kick Mercer and Mike out of the apartment because they've had her for 12 hours that day, and he wants to be a part of her life too. A real relationship is someone she has to actually share herself with, and I don't see that happening.
The characters are nicely drawn, and they don't detract from the stories, so I'll read the next book and know I'll be glad I did, but I've lowered my expectations on character growth.
This book did not hold my interest. Put it down and picked it up a dozen times hoping something interesting would finally happen. A dull read from start to finish. If you decide to read it, get a used book or borrow one from a library.

I lost interest quickly as one needs to have a fair amount of knowledge in religion to be able to grasp the apparant significance of the crimes, and it is almost a listen-and-learn story from the "expert" Chapman; Cooper is the bit part player in a detective novel. Not great - if this is your first Cooper read please read from book 1, "Final Jeopardy". this is 13th time unlucky; and please Fairstein, revert to type for thre next epistle....Cooper is the heroine and lead; she is a forensic expert, and Chapman is not the clever-clogs expert with the dismissive attitude he has here, bemoaning Coops almost apparent ignorance of religion. Here's to book 14, it has to be better!
I now own several of her books.
Book arrived promptly in a good condition.
Thought this book was a bit trite and did not match up to earlier books in the series. The whole religious plot was a bit unbelievable I thought, especially where the main characters seemed to have so much obscure knowledge. And the whole circus train thing...come on! The author seems to be going down the Patricia Cornwell route with the werewolf...
Hope to see a return to form in the next book.
