date I just wish the would focus strongly on her as a profiler than all the other personal distractions My rating however reflects my interest in the story and the strength of the secondary characters who made this compelling 35 stars Number five in the series and I still cannot bump it up to four stars although it was close The final part of the book was very Smokin' Hot exciting and I felt only good thoughts as I closed my iPad on it But then I considered thearlier parts of the book which still contained all the things I do not like about this series Maggie is still only marginally competent Characters from previous books came back and were as hopeless as the first time around And then the random coincidences which were used to pull all these unrelated people into the same place at the same time were totally unbelievable And don t get me started on the over use of maggots and hot tea not together though Sorry Did not mean to rant It is actually very readable a pretty good story and Placing Memory exciting in parts.
