Port Mortuary, the title of Patricia Cornwell’s eighteenth Scarpetta novel, is literally a port for the dead. In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta’s past merges with the high tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she enlisted in the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt and found herself ensnared in a gruesome case of what seemed to be vicious, racially motivated hate crimes against two Americans in South Africa. More than twenty years and many career successes later, her secret military ties have drawn her to Dover Air Force base, where she has been immersed in a training fellowship to master the art of CT-assisted virtual autopsy—a procedure the White House has mandated that she introduce in the private sector.

    " This is my first Patricia Cornwell in quite some time as she became a little too graphic in her writing for me. This one was not graphic, but there didn't seem to be much story. Not my favorite. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Bonnie K | 5/5/2011

    " Last three books of the Scarpetta series have been so disappointing; disjointed story telling, clipped writting, characthes that you don't bond or care about. Last one I'm reading. "

    " I was really disappointed again with this book. It would have been much better in an abridged version. The book just seemed to go on and on. Scarpetta has written much better books - I miss the older books! "
