Scarpetta #17

The Scarpetta Factor by Patricia Cornwell

Sitting down to write this little blurb, I am having a hard time putting together exactly what this latest Scarpetta installment was about. It seemed so long and drawn out that I can't quite pinpoint the main point!

Benton receives an odd and threatening Christmas card/message from a former mental patient. Then Kay receives a suspicious and dangerous Fed Ex package. Somehow Kay's appearance on a news program factors in as does the old Chandonne family of previous installments. When the book first started it was about the murders of two young women. I had high hopes that this one was going back to Kay Scarpetta and friends awesome investigation techniques. Then the story got all muddled with various avenues and details.

Sorry this blurb is so scattered. I guess it is indicitive of The Scarpetta Factor.
