In the 3rd installment of the Body of Evidence Jenna Blake still realing from the recent loss of her freind, has new grisly murder victems to deal with at work. Strange ritual killings, no 2 alike and yet all have seem to have something in common. Is this all just too much for her this time?

The third book in the BODY OF EVIDENCE Series, SOUL SURVIVOR, proves that sequels can be as good, if not better, than the original!

Jenna Blake is fighting to regain her balance at Somerset University. In only a few weeks, her world has been turned upside down: her best friend, Melody, was murdered; her father, a Professor, started dating; her half-brother, Pierce, was accused of murder; and her two good friends, roommate Yoshiko and Melody's brother, Hunter, have started going out. Her job with the M.E.'s office has been going well, but she still doesn't feel as if life is in perfect balance. She's feeling depressed, a little sorry for herself, and out of sorts.

Then weird murders start happening in Somerset and the neighboring town with overtones of ancient Hindu and mythological sacrifices. Dr. Slikowski asks Jenna to accompany him to murder scene, where he's been asked for his opinion, and Jenna is thrilled to be in the inner circle. Thrilled, that is, until the cops on the case make her out to be an imcompetent kid, someone to baby-sit the M.E., who's confined to a wheelchair. Dr. Slick puts them in their place, but Jenna is left with the feeling that as long as she's only eighteen, no one will take her seriously in this profession she's chosen to make her own.

As the murders progress, Jenna starts doing her own research into the rituals that the killings seem to be based on, and comes up with some of her own conclusions: the murderer is probably a woman, she's probably dying, and she's probably trying to take over another human body.

As Jenna works with Dr. Slikowski, M.E. employee Dyson, and Somerset detectives Audrey Gaines and Danny Mariano to figure out who is behind the murders, Jenna is once again put into a position where she's in danger. Add to that the fact that her crush on Detective Mariano is growing stronger while at the same time her feelings for fellow college student Damon are mixing themselves up, and Jenna's personal life is as tumultuous as her professional one.

SOUL SURVIVOR is another winner in Christopher Golden's Body of Evidence Series. I can't wait to see what happens next in Jenna's life, especially if she's going to leave the M.E.'s office, as the ending of this book implies.

A real winner!
