Two, no, at least four narcisists, fueled by emotions and personal lusts, frantically manage to screw up every thing they touch due to the lack of professional detachment. I'm not sure if Scarpetta and co. have always been like this or if the narrarators take on Scarpetta, Lucy, and Benton Wesley just really brought that out into the light. Even the old lady secretary is suffering from this selfish urge to put her own romantic interests in the way of stopping murder and mayhem.

I like a mystery/thriller that has the characters have to make these awful choices or paramount importance once in a while, but this is over the top. In a single day, every single character makes a dozen or more choices that would cause them to lose professional credibility.
