A?Massachusetts state investigator is called home from Knoxville, Tennessee, where he is completing a course at the National Forensic Academy. His boss, the district attorney, attractive but hard-charging, is planning to run for governor, and as a showcase she's planning to use a new crime initiative called At Risk-its motto: "Any crime, any time." In particular, she's been looking for a way to employ cutting-edge DNA technology, and she thinks she's found the perfect subject in an unsolved twenty-year-old murder-in Tennessee. If her office solves the case, it ought to make them all look pretty good, right?Her investigator is not so?sure-not sure about anything to do with this woman, really-but before he can open his mouth, a shocking piece of violence intervenes, an act that shakes up not only both their lives but the lives of everyone around them. It's not a random event. Is it personal? Is it professional? Whatever it is, the implications are very, very bad indeed ... and they're about to get much worse. Sparks fly, traps spring, twists abound-this is the master working at the top of her game. View the trailer for "Patricia Cornwell's At Risk", premiering on Lifetime on April 10, 2010.

this was a marvelous, story that kept you reading and characters were excellently developed. Would REALLY like to see Win in future books by author - he was very interesting, the writing full of twists , turns and pieces of character's lives balled into an exciting read.

I really liked this early work by Cornwell. I thinks it's too bad she did not continue writing more books with the Win character, he was quite interesting

Just OK. Not up to her usual standards. Seems a bit choppy and disjointed - perhaps because it was written in serialized format for publication in a magazine.
