Red Mist (Kay Scarpetta, Bk 19) (Audio CD) (Unabridged)
Red Mist - Kay Scarpetta, Bk 19 - Audio CD - Unabridged Author:Patricia Cornwell, Kate Burton (Narrator) Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplica... more »ble deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning of something far more destructive: a terrifying terrain of conspiracy and potential terrorism on an international scale. And she is the only one who can stop it.

RED MIST is a welcome return to the style and character of Patricia Cornwell's early Kay Scarpetta novels. For a few years, the author's work was bitter and all the characters seemed angry; the books were not pleasant to read. It's great to welcome "the real" Kay Scarpetta back.
Kate Burton narrated this book beautifully. She gave each character a distinctive voice without overdoing the accents...even including a brief conversation with an Australian man! A good narrator can make or break a book, and Burton is the best reader for Cornwell of several I've heard.
The multiple murder mystery was well-plotted, and when the "whodunnit" was revealed, I felt that I had been given all the facts and a fair chance to figure it out along with Scarpetta.
