Book of the Dead by Patricia Cornwell


Book of the Dead by Patricia Cornwell

The latest Dr. Kay Scarpetta novel takes us to Italy where a famous tennis star, Drew Martin is murdered and back to Charleston, SC where Kay, Marino, and Rose are trying to make a new home and forensics lab. The clues in Martin's murder do not seem to add up and there seems to be a strange connection to deaths in Charleston.

I have been a longtime Cornwell reader and fan, but I found this book confusing, hard to follow, and do not really like where the characters have been going. Geez, I feel bad saying so. I will likely keep reading her books anyway out of loyalty.

I have not read Cornwall in a long time.

BTW: I loved the audio version of The Neighbor; Gardner. I think you recommended it???

I gave up on Cornwell quite a while ago. Sounds like this one's a bit of a dud.

I know a lot of people gave up on her. I kind of feel bad. Oh well. THey can't all be winners, right?

Diane- I am SO glad you liked The Neighbor. I thought it was great. In fact, I have loved all of her books.

I found Southern Cross very difficult to get through and I love her books! How was Scarpetta.

Thanks for the information on this book.
