    Last year I read the last Sue Grafton in the alphabet series and was disappointed Turns out she had a terminal illness so I feel bad for my critical review I don t think Cornwell has that excuse It s been a long time since I read a Patricia Cornwell mystery, but I remember them as fast paced with interesting characters Quantum has none of those qualities.This story centers on a pair of twin sisters, narrated by one of them, both of whom are clearly on the autism spectrum The whole book is a Last year I read the last Sue Grafton in the alphabet series and was disappointed Turns out she had a terminal illness so I feel bad for my critical review I don t think Cornwell has that excuse It s been a long time since I read a Patricia Cornwell mystery, but I remember them as fast paced with interesting characters Quantum has none of those qualities.This story centers on a pair of twin sisters, narrated by ...

    Got this free asPrime First Reads choice for September I had got fed up with Scarpetta so was keen to read about this different character A pity She is such an annoying character I have given up after 20% I hate not finishing books but life is really too short for this one

    Confirming my expectations this book turns out to be an utterly confusing jumble of poorly constructed prose Nothing attracts me to continue reading it.
