    On a quiet day, away from the hustle of Richmond, in a small cottage on the Virginia coast, Dr. Kay Scarpetta receives a disturbing phone call from the Chesapeake police. Thirty feet deep in the murky waters of Virginia's Elizabeth River, a scuba diver's body is discovered near the Inactive Naval Shipyard.

    What did you like best about Cause of Death? What did you like least?

    Love the series, but this one seemed to lack the same thrill to keep listening.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patricia Cornwell again?

    Absolutely


    What three words best describe C.J. Critt’s voice?

    Honestly? SNOBBISH. If the stories weren't so interesting, I might revert back to the paperbacks I also bought of the same series.


    Did Cause of Death inspire you to do anything?

    Not really...


    Any additional comments?

    This plot was disappointing and implausible.

    Story
    (706)

    A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over 2,000 miles away, in Boston. She has no idea why. But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist's disappearance is connected to a series of crimes - much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.

    G. House Sr. says: "A tedious disappointment - Don't Bother!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Bone Bed to be better than the print version?

    Advantage of audiobooks is being able to listen while having my hands free to do other activities (internet surfing,exercising, cleaning house, etc). Disadvantage is you are at the mercy of the narrator's reading. If you don't like the way characters are read, you must suffer through that character's part (e.g., Lucy sounding like a sterotypical deep-voiced lesbian that I can onlly imagine the narrator thinks must be appropriate when earlier narrator had a more innocent, sweet voice for the character I miss the "earlier" Lucy!)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kay Scarpetta - logical, analytical, and rarely emotional, unlike other characters in the series. A heroine to admire.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Audiobooks makes it easy to close your eyes and mentally escape to somewhere else.Dislikes some of the voices by the narrator, particularly Lucy's.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Always hate to reach the end of the book, particularly this one. I spent the past year reading the entire Scarpetta series, and now I've reached the end (till the next book release).


    Any additional comments?

    The references to food in details seem over the top throughout all of the Scarpetta books series. It nearly made me want to hit the FF.
