1 Significant Quote 

"He just got out of jail," Scarpetta calls out. "And if you send him back, I'll burn your house down."

This quote is at the very end of the book. It is one of the last lines of the book and leads the reader on. This lets the reader think that there will be another book to the series. When Scarpetta finds out he is out of jail, she immediately gets angry with Benton. The killer is known but the whereabouts are not. This is why the ending of this book calls for another book. The person that they are talking about that gets out of jail was accused for the murder when he has nothing to do with it. Scarpetta knew all along that he had nothing to do with it, but they needed a suspect and blamed him.
