In Blow Fly, Kay Scarpetta stands at the threshold of a new life after her work as Virginia's Chief Medical Examiner has come to a jarring end. At the close of The Last Precinct, she knew she would have to leave Richmond if she were to find any peace. So she packed up her belongings and set out for Florida. Now she must unravel a conspiracy with an international reach and confront the shock of her life, a blow that will force her to question all she holds dear.

With her knowledge of state-of-the-art forensics and investigative technique that have made her America's most alluring crime writer, Patricia Cornwell once again brings to life a world both frightening and irresistibly compelling. Blow Fly is Scarpetta's, and Cornwell's, most unforgettable journey yet. Download and start listening now!

    " Page turner. Couldn't put this book down. Kay Scarpetta is lead through lots of twists. This novel seems to focus a lot more on the secondary characters and cleaning up some loose ends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Patrick | 2/19/2014

    " Not perfect by any means, but a good page-turner. I started it Sunday morning in the car and stayed up until 1am to finish it that night. Pretty good mystery but this one was light on the forensic science and seemed to be aimed at Cornwell's existing fans not new ones. I've only read one other by her (Postmortem, her first Scarpetta novel), and this is a major jump in time and events. Still, I'll go back and read all of the in-between titles. Good book to disappear into for awhile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deehiggins | 2/19/2014

    " One of her best, IMO. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurel | 2/16/2014

    " I liked the book, but hated the way she changed her writng style!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 2/6/2014

    " I wouldn't have given this book five stars on the first read-through because it was so different than what I had expected. After the first 11 Scarpetta books, rumor had it that Cornwell was done with my favorite heroine (oh, the tragedy!). I fairly jumped up and down when I heard this was coming out, but when I read it I was rather taken aback. Cornwell switched from first-person narrative to third-person omnicient, which made things quite different. There was a good reason for the switch, but it took me by surprise and impeded my enjoyment of the book on the first read-through. On the reread, however, I totally immersed myself in the worlds of not just one, but four of the main characters of the novel, and I found that I completely enjoyed knowing more sides of the story. It was wonderful, and I applaud the courage it must have taken to make such a dramatic switch in storytelling technique. All the Scarpetta books since then have been written from this POV, and I think at this point I would be sorely disappointed if she went back to first-person. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 1/21/2014

    " This is book #12 in the series, which means I skipped a multitude of books, and I am very confused reagrding the personal lives of the characters. After this, I'm reading the series from the start in chronological order! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 1/19/2014

    " Jean-Baptiste escapes from death row, Kay is no longer Chief Medical Examiner of Virginia, Lucy murders Marino's son and Benton Wesley, Kay's true love, is alive (gasp!). It was kind of a strange book, a bit disjointed, but an essential read if you want to continue with the Kay Scarpetta series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rochelle | 1/3/2014

    " I enjoyed this book very much. i love the characters, the plot,and everything about this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 12/3/2013

    " Loved the short chapters for each character! Made for a very quick read and it was nice to see most of the characters from the past books come together!! Look forward to #13!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 11/25/2013

    " I started reading this and thought, oh no, not ANOTHER book about the Chandonne family! By the end I was thoroughly hooked. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather Willingham | 10/15/2013

    " I love the Kay Scarpetta series, but did not enjoy this one. Definitely my least favorite of the series. Would not have finished it, but wanted the info about the main characters for the next book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 10/14/2013

    " Have read, re-read and listened too numerous times. This was one of my favorites by Ms. Cornwell. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee Jennings | 10/12/2013

    " I have to say, this was the best so far in the Kay Scarpetta series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 10/9/2013

    " Another great book by Patricia Cornwall. Emotional, twisting, and suspenseful with an old case finally resolved with a sweet ending of reuniting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robin | 4/22/2013

    " Why people read Patricia Cornwell is baffling to me. This book was horrible. I would have found stuffing envelopes to be more exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Huey | 12/18/2011

    " i thought it was okay but the storyline was quite confusing and it didn't help either with benton feeling negatively throughout the story. "

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron 3 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn Neyer | 2/19/2010

    " I was somewhat disappointment in this book. I have read Corwell books and this one just did not rise to her usual level. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candie | 12/7/2009

    " This was my favorite Kay Scarpetta book. It was fast paced and exciting! Go Patricia! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie Scoccia | 3/27/2009

    " Something you least expect the story going to be about. Teaches you again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 10/24/2008

    " All the previous books in this series have been in 1st person POV, but this book is now in the 3rd person. It was pretty good, however, and I see why the author had to do that. However, the ending is way too abrupt. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Quietlyurban | 11/5/2006

    " Very weak. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cathy | 3/28/2006

    " The characters were flat, too "grisly" and the story line nearly non-existent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janette | 2/11/2006

    " generic thriller; entertaining enough "
