    "I have read many books along these lines where I do take an interest in the procedurals. This book was very good, and although it was different than the movie, the book version did provide me with a lot of the procedurals and information that I am interested in. I'm not sure how realistic it is I do not work in that field, but it certainly satisfied my intellectual curiosity"

    "This book was an absolute snooze fest. The plot is fairly bland, and I couldn't connect with any of the characters. I wouldn't say it's poorly written, but the ending is atrocious. The entire story seems like it's leading up to this huge finale, but I was very letdown by the conclusion. Subjectively speaking, I wasn't a fan at all. "

The reviews and awards this has been given are no joke; it's a great read that keeps you guessing the whole way through.

    "As an ex-policeman who was on the force for twenty years, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Exhume really takes you into the reality of what a medical examiner does, and the truth behind the scenes. It is not always like the glitz and glamour of crime on TV. Sometimes it is frustrating. Sometimes you feel like giving up. This is one of the best crime fiction I have read. I highly recommend it to everyone and anyone. I actually have bought six copies to this to give to the guys on the force. "

    "Another Mitch Rapp book from Vince Flynn. I liked the first couple, but by now it really feels like he's just not trying anymore. A computer could write these books. There's a new group or government department somewhere, they have a plan or a big secret, one of their people bumps into Rapp somehow, and Rapp is drawn into a big adventure trying to track down the answers and make the wrongs right again. Fine if you want a mindless read, but not terribly stimulating. No sudden left turns, that's for sure."
