I have been a true Patricia Cornwell fan for years looking forward to every release. Not only was "At Risk" disappointing for it's lack of content it was disappointing to see Cornwell wrote it as a vehicle for an angry political agenda. As a fan I look forward to her well developed characters and plots and lately both have seemed tired. I will wait to see reviews before I buy her next novel.

In the few pages of this book, I felt Ms. Cornwell gave real insight into the characters. The only disappointment here was the similarity of her Win Garano character to James Patterson's Alex Cross in the grandmother character. I think Ms. Cornwell could have been a tad more original there. Overall, though, I found the characters fresh and interesting. The plot also had originality and enough twists to keep the reader guessing. Because of the brevity of the book, there was not a lot of the redundancy found in some of the longer volumes today. It was a good book for travel as it could be finished in a few hours. Without getting graphic, there was still sexual friction between several of the characters leading one to wonder where these relationships might go in a future novel with the same characters. (And I do see that this is #1 in the Win Garano Series.) This book also skimmed over all the forensics which I found refreshing after so many books and television series getting overly (in my opinion) graphic in this area and concentrating on this aspect so much that there isn't much plot development. I found this a welcome departure from so many of the books of this genre.

I loved 'At Risk' and 'The Front'!! I thought some parts were boring as hell and dragged on, but I loved the characters, although the DA is quite the hardass but overall they're both really good!! lots of twists!!

Whenever we travel we bring audiobooks to pass the time. The last Patricia Cornwell book I thought was a rehash of several others. I read most of her books and I enjoy her plots. I thought this book new and refreshing. I am looking forward to development of her character Win Garano. I will definitely buy the next book of this series

I've enjoyed Ms. Cromwell's Kay Scarpetta series. This series quality didn't even come close. Very disappointed. Plot and characters not developed well at all. No originality in this series at all.

Two new characters, Win Garano and Monique Lamont, are brought to life by Patricia Cornwell in "At RisK" and a follow-up book "The Front". The character developement is not quite as deep as the Kay Scarpetta series of books, but that is expected since both books are only 200 pages. The stories are similar to Sherlock Holmes mysteries with intrique, twists and surprising conclusions. The similarity does not end there as these books were originally intended to be serialized in a weekly magazine. If you want to read a quick mystery, like a old 90 minute Holmes movie, this is a very good book to start with.

I find one character very interesting and weird, but I like the storytelling involved in this story.

I always read the latest Patricia Cornwell even if the circle of characters aren't as appealing as they used to be. It seems as if Dr. Scarpatta's personal life just isn't as interesting as before. But the storyline and plot are always worth the read.

Loved At Risk and Win! What a hunk! Can't wait to read The Front. Characters have depth. Keep the series going!

Probably on the best books I've ever read. So it's nothing like what you oldies are used to reading about Scarpetta, GET OVER IT. This book is exciting, interesting, and by far one of the best plots and intriguing characters of all time. Buy this book, you will be glad you didn't listen to the losers who do not know quality. Definitely Cornwell quality. Actually, I say Cornwell's best.

Well developed characters and the storyline is full of action and intrigue. Readers will never guess who the criminal is but will find themselves constantly guessing at the identity. I can't wait for the next part of this novella.

No this not a page turner like the Scarpetta series. I believe this was originally written in a serial format. I liked this novel. It was a quick read and a great diversion. I got a special charge from it because it mentions the area where I live. Cornwell hasn't lost her edge, she is just going in a different direction!
