    " Overall I was less impressed by this one but I still liked it! The story was less thrilling than the last two and more political but still enjoyable. "

    " My favorite Kay Scarpetta book from Patricia Cornwell, largely because the real-life events on which the plot is based happened in our backyard, the still-unsolved (Colonial) "Parkway Murders." The newspaper for which I worked for 20-odd years (some of them very odd years) burned a lot of ink on the four double murders. Scarpetta's Richmond setting appeals to me for a similar reason: geographical familiarity. Every now and then it's nice to turn a corner and see a familiar river view or skyscraper. I like the early Scarpetta books better than the later ones, with Blowfly being the most recent of the books I liked. Cornwell's immersion in forensic sciences predates (and maybe sparked) its mass-market, televised popularity. Her research is meticulous. My only criticism of the early books is that her characters occasionally take themselves too seriously. The later books didn't engage me; I turned to other authors. I haven't tried Cornwell's other series. "

    " My favourite one so far!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 1/29/2014

    " It's fun to see the characters develop from book to book. I also like what I learn about forensic science from these books. Cornwell obviously researches the books well. "

    " really good book, was actually turned on to ms cornwell by my boss. the book was very law and order: SVU. Kay and Marino as olivia and elliott... "

    " I can't give it more than 2stars as the matter of fact writing is just not for me. I didn't care who had done it who died or what happened to any of the characters! I finished it just not my thing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LA Carlson | 1/19/2014

    " I'm attempting to read all the Scarpetta novels as they were written and published. This is the 3rd in the series and while I'm still waiting for my copy of the 2nd book; Body of Evidence, to be available. I thought this book was better than Postmortem for several reasons; The foundation of characters in this series is beginning to be fleshed out and I can see them as they are described. There is a mention of a same-sex couple and Scarpetta's relationships with a number of people; especially women are clear. When Cornwell writes about women there is a clear bias because even if they are doing unsavory things there is a consistent sensitivity. The plot was credible and as in most genre novels it's wrapped up at the end. Yes, there is a great deal of forensic speak but that is the wonderful part because that is what she does for a living. Whether it's intentional or not at this stage of this series Cornwell is building a brand with a strong woman! Bravo! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dev | 1/10/2014

    " Cornwell continues to deliver murder procedurals beyond the boring talk, ridiculous plot twists, and one dimensional characters of many of her competitors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Honor | 1/7/2014

    " Easily one of the best female protagonist investigative series out there. "

    " Beach reading! "

    " I really enjoyed the Kay Scarpetta Series.I have a couple more in that series to read yet. I enjoy reading the crime mysterys. I try to figure it out before the end and of course I am never right. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 11/20/2013

    " Her books are starting to all sound the same and with similar plots and personal issues. While this book was a decent read it periodically got bogged down in meaningless dialog and medical data. Has been one of my favorite authors but is getting stale and redundant. "

    " Of the three, I liked this one the best. Lots of intrique. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jannene | 12/1/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book. I was totally caught up in story. I couldn't imagine who could kill all of these couples. The story kept giving just little bread crumbs until you were told who did it at the end. I love books that do this where you have no idea who had done it until the bitter end. "

    " I'd like to give this one a 3.5 stars. It's not a favorite but several parts of the mystery drag you in for more. I'm also glad there was more detective work than Dr. Scarpetta romance. Time to move on with the series! "
