Fun read, but sort of confusing. Not Cornwell's best, but like I said, it is a fun read, like all of her books are.

Cornwell's third Scarpetta book. Much better than the later books when the characters are all angry and unpleasant.

A great fast read!
It is a wonderful adventure with an ending that will surprise most Scarpetta fans. It is a bit predictable, but not completely so it keeps your interst going.

Patricia Cornwells Kay Scarpetta is a character who becomes addicting. Smart, Funny, brave, and tough she is a character who sticks with you, and you will find yourself wanting to read the whole series. Chapters are on the shorter side so the book is easier to digest.

The author's story telling is getting a bit better than her first two in the series, although sometimes I really have to wonder if an M.E. has this much excitement in their jobs. I guess I've never thought that they would be doing so much detective work out in the field as Scarpetta does.

Kay is also starting to grow on me and not make me roll my eyes as much as usual with her egoism. If this continues into future books is yet to be seen though.

And, a spoiler alert. I can't believe that after how warped Mrs. Harvey acted throughout the book that no one thought to watch her when the suspect was released on arraignment for the minor charged he had gotten caught for. It was like everyone who came into contact with this grieving, yet crazy, woman was blind. I can't believe no one thought she'd pull a vigilante justice like she did.

Overall, good story, though and looking forward to the next one.

This book kept me up all night reading. I couldn't put it down. Definitely a good read, but if you're going to read this book, start with the book Postmortem. It's the first in the Scarpetta series. Patricia Cornwell's got me hooked on this series. The characters are so well written that I can picture their every movement. Wonderful book.
