A believable central character
Just this author
What an incredible piece of garbage.
When informed of a break in to her computer database she does absolutely nothing except to declare at a subsequent meeting that the leaks to the newspapers did not come from her department. I stopped reading after this. Life's too short to waste on reading about the bumblings of this incompetent boob.
This was the first Scarpetta novel for me, and I should have started closer to the beginning of the series. There were relationships and undercurrents I couldn't appreciate as they'd started in earlier books. So I'd recommend starting at the start...
Speaks too slowly.
Who knows what I would have been doing if I hadn't been listening to this.
Thank God it ended.
Kay Scarpetta, naturally.
I hope not.
Well written. I enjoyed the problem-solving attitude throughout. But it was really too detailed, horrible, relentless & frightening for me.
None were believable or enjoyable.
This book was more difficult to get through than Bleak House, Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, and Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire... Not because it was long, but because it was mind numbing in its predictable affected tone. From the first to the last it was just awful.
This might have been a good listen, but I shut down when the narrator has trouble regulating their breathing and they gulp air. Might I suggest quitting smoking? Listen to a piece of this before you buy, if the sound of the narrator doesn't bug you Patrica Cornwell is a good author.
