    The Cove is a quaint little postcard town made up only of old folk who sell the World's Greatest Ice Cream - a secret recipe that brings lots of tourists into town.

    Into The Cove comes Sally Brainerd, daughter of murdered Amory St. John, of Washington, D.C., seeking sanctuary, and FBI Special Agent James Quinlan, who's undercover and after her. He's got a murder to solve, and he believes she's the key. But is she really?

    After working one of the worst mass killings in U.S. history, Scarpetta returns home to Cambridge, Massachusetts. Exhausted and ill, she's recovering at home when she receives an unsettling call. The body of a young woman has been discovered on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's rugby field. The victim, a graduate student named Gail Shipman, is oddly draped in ivory linen and posed in a way that is too deliberate to be the killer's first strike.

    Story

    I have listened to all of the books in Cornwell's Scarpetta series and have been gradually disappointed as the story goes along. I do believe #21 has done it for me... I am vigilantly trying to get through this book but I'm ready to give up. Most notably, my increased irritation comes from the grandiose description of the characters while trying to depict them as humble. Cornwell doesn't succeed and I get no sense of humility in her characters-- only how each of them are the very best at what they do-- have a lot of money and everyone else in their lives are pretty much beneath them. Her excessive description of the undying "thing" Marino has for Scarpetta as well as his "obvious jealousy" of her husband is just annoying. Don't get me started on Lucy... I'm thinking we are supposed to get the idea that she is this scary, dangerous element-- ummm... no--- again just really annoying.
    It's possible that the narration is exaggerating the details I find so irritating but I think Cornwell has began focusing way too much on the inter-workings of the relationships between these characters rather than on the story itself. That works in a lot of books-- but not this one and not in the past 3 or 4 books she has written. I listen to crime novels for the elements of the crime-- not to hear the main character go on and on...and on about how wonderful she is. So, it's goodbye for now, Kay...

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story

    I just discovered Gillian Flynn last week and have gone through the 3 books she has on audible since. It has been a long time since I have found an author that holds my attention the way Flynn does. The writing is focused on the story and doesn't veer off the way so many of these mystery thrillers do. I also like the fact that all three of her books are stand alone novels. So many of the books I find on audible are installments of series that a lot of times are missing some of those books, generally the first book of the series. I am only disappointed I have come to the end of this 3rd book and look forward to her next novel.
