Flesh and Blood: A Scarpetta Novel

Flesh and Blood: A Scarpetta Novel - Patricia Cornwell I admit the the last couple of books have not been as good as they were in the beginning, but I love these characters. I enjoyed this one but I admit that the ending has me worried. From a simple explanation earlier in the book, the last word, "SNAP" left me with a feeling of dread. Please don't let it be what I think it means.
Will be looking forward to the next book with trepidation.
