Summary: In Richmond, Virginia, young lovers are dying. So far, four couples in the area have disappeared, only to be found months later as mutilated corpses. When the daughter of the president's newest drug czar vanishes along with her boyfriend, Dr. Kay Scarpetta knows time is short. Following a macabre trail of evidence that ties the present homicides to a grisly crime in the past, Kay must draw upon her own personal resources to track down a murderer who is as skilled at eliminating clues as Kay is at finding them...  (Taken from Goodreads)

Thoughts: As soon as I finished the second book in the series, I really needed to read the third book so I picked it up and basically ploughed through this one.  I finished it in no time.


There is so much mystery in this one.  It was so hard to know who to trust and who to believe.  There is a lot of politics at play in this novel and I usually don’t enjoy reading books like that but this time it didn’t really bother me.  I found it to be quite enjoyable.

It was good to see and hear from a couple of characters who were in the first book because I felt like there was a slight disconnect between books 1 and 2 and I felt like book 3 kind of bought in elements from both books 1 and 2 to connect the three books together as a series.

Finishing All that Remains I have to say that it had a lot of sad undertones and I was left feeling sad for a lot of the characters.  I don’t really want to delve too much into details as I could be at risk of spoiling things but I will just say that some of the characters paths through the book were just really sad.

I thought that All That Remains was really good and I loved it just as much as the other two books in the series.  I am definitely loving this series.
