    " I've read a couple of her Kay Scarpetta books and I've enjoyed them--perfect for reading on the train. I never can figure out who the killer is before he/she is revealed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andra | 2/1/2014

    " I did not like about it was the semi-absence of Marino. I can never get enough of his paranoid, politically incorrect humor. "

    " This one was more personal and a bit sad, but excellent in its details and descriptions of events and characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 11/19/2013

    " Unnatural Exposure was a great read! Wasnt exactly my type of mystery book but I still loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 11/19/2013

    " Ok, so this book is crap, so sue me. At least Patricia Cornwell writes fairly well and you kinda learn something. I will have to say, though, this wasn't the best Kay Scarpetta book I've read. It was a little too confusing and Law and Order for me. I am going to visit Tangiers Island now, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaime | 11/5/2013

    " I didn't quite like this book. It was a little confusing for me, but in the end, I didn't like the outcome of the whole small pox confusion. Patricia Cornwell is usually a pretty good writer, but I don't know what happened to this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roy McDine | 10/4/2013

    " Very well researched but sometimes disturbing - great ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 8/4/2013

    " Another good Kay Scarpetta book. I can't handle the graphic crime details too often, but I love the characters and keep coming back for a visit from time to time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roland | 1/31/2013

    " Formula gets old after a while. "

    " I am loving this series so much!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 12/2/2012

    " Scarpetta travels around the country trying to contain an unidentified smallpox like virus. A body found in Virginia is linked to one in Ireland. She's up against a killer the likes she has never seen. The story takes many twists and turn before coming to a conclusion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 8/18/2012

    " I am reading all the Kay Scarpeta books in order. They move nicely and I like the character development from book to book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Erich Sysak | 5/29/2012

    " "Scattered and unfocused. Not firmly rooted in Kay's pov. Almost the opposite of Postmortem which was so tightly controlled and fast. Had trouble getting through it." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hanna | 4/20/2012

    " A good lead in novel to Scarpetta #9. This is kinda slow, but it's good nonetheless. Sets a good groundwork in a specific relationship in Kay's life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Booth | 10/29/2011

    " really enjoyed this book, i like how each book is a different case but there are still parts of a continuous story in "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amie | 9/7/2011

    " I really like the way Cornwell describes the in depth intricacies of the life of an ME. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maca_48 | 7/21/2011

    " All in all, a good book if you like that kind of genre. Good thing is that all medical terms and police acronyms are explained immediately so you don't have to search at the end of the book. Quite many twists in the plot that keep you interested. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erika | 6/16/2011

    " I wish I could be a bigger fan of Patricia Cornwell. Her books certainly are readable, even gripping at times, but they frequently leave me unstatisfied. In this particular book, we don't meet the killer until the last chapter. Not fair. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 5/17/2011

    " This book has a weird twist to it. I liked the character development but I don't like how everyone Scarpetta is close to or works with keeps dying. Also not sure if I like Benton and Scarpetta as a couple, yet either. I like the knowledge in this book but it wasn't a favorite of mine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/7/2011

    " A change of pace from Cornwell's usual writing style. Told in first person so it threw me off at first because I'm not used to reading from Scarpetta's direct point of view. But it had a good plot and fit nicely in the Kay Scarpetta series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roland | 5/6/2011

    " Formula gets old after a while. "

    " Not one of her better ones. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Genie | 3/3/2011

    " With this book, she starts a downward spiral of. Increasingly unlikely scenarios and ego-ridden plots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/16/2011

    " Another great Kay Scarpetta novel. I love this character. "

    " I read all the books in the Scarpetta series. I really like the characters and the mysteries. There is nothing earth-shattering about the writing or the concept, but they are fun and entertaining books and easy to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 12/28/2010

    " Totally enjoyed this book. It is interesting the relationship between Kay and her niece Lucy and I wish there were more scenes of their interaction. Both women seem to be very busy with their careers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shanan | 12/14/2010
