A schoolgirl found it on a nature hike. A severed human foot wearing pink nail polish. A gruesome but invaluable clue that leads forensic pathologist Birdy Waterman down a much darker trail--to a dangerous psychopath whose powers of persuasion seem to have no end. Only by teaming up with sheriff's detective Kendall Stark can Birdy hope to even the odds in a deadly game.

This was an interesting police procedural that switched between two cases: the dead teenage girl found in the woods and a husband that died from poisoning. There was not much suspense but the main characters were easy to like and follow as they investigated. Some early parts of the book were somewhat graphic, which I didn’t like. A sub-plot was Birdy’s family problems with her nephew and sister. I didn’t think the ending was believable but overall thought the story was solid. ( )

What begins as the mysterious discovery of a foot wearing pink nail polish quickly escalates into so much more. As Kendall Stark, the sheriff’s detective, and Birdy Waterman, the local pathologist, begin their investigation things seem odd but not as odd as they will become. I had read this book when it first came out but had forgotten most of it. One good thing about ageing is that you get to often be surprised over and over again:) If you like well thought out crime novels with well developed characters who all manage to be reasonable…rational… and entertaining…you should like this book as well as Gregg Olsen’s others.

I read the third book in this series a while back after receiving an ARC for review, and really enjoyed it--enough that I had to pick up the earlier books. I didn't get Quite what I expected with this one, but I did really enjoy it.

The characters I felt a bit distanced from in the third book (having not read the earlier ones) came to life here, in this first installment of the series. From the beginning, I enjoyed every page of getting to know them, and found them sort of wonderfully believable. I might have liked a little bit more depth in a few of the more minor characters, but they still had depth enough to feel believable. As with the third book, the plot and the pacing were fast, intricate, and interesting--I never wanted to put the book down, and I was entertained and surprised on a rolling basis.

Where I was let down just a bit was in the writing. I remember being really engaged with the writing in the third book, but for whatever reason, it took me out of the story a few times here. I should say at this point that I'm a full-time editor, so a lot of things bother me which might not bother the average reader--and probably wouldn't have bothered me ten years ago, truth be told. But, be that as it may, there were a lot of points in this book where "head-hopping" distracted me, it happened so quickly, and also where 'telling' ('vs. showing') distracted me, to the point where I found myself wishing Olsen had had a better editor or copy-editor.

But, all that said, I enjoyed this book too much to not pick up the next Waterman & Stark thriller, and I'm already looking forward to it. So, yes, I'd absolutely recommend this series and Olsen on to any readers who want tightly wound suspense/thrillers! ( )

The story is interesting. The author cannot write dialogue very well and when the characters speak, it seems stilted and off somehow. The characters are a little like cardboard characters the author is moving around on a flat surface. It's a bit lifeless. Will not buy anymore of the series. ( )

Awful writing! Decided I didn't really care why there was a foot in the woods. Life's too short to read bad books. ( )
