    Story
    (707)

    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!"
    "Another thriller"

    Story
    Where does The Bone Bed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks in top 10 and I've listened to probably 500 audiobooks over the last 20 years. Best audio book was "Hunt for Red October", then Cornwell's "All that Remains." Brillant piece of writing. This is a great book too but not my all time favorite.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just when you can't imagine how Patricia Cornwell can come up with a new fresh angle for Lucy, Benton, Marino and Kay -- Cornwell blows you away with a whole new interesting plot with twists and turns. Love the complexity of Scarpetta and how Cornwell always has a way of making you feel what Scarpetta feels. Story comes to life.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Reading’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. She's good but I've heard better.


    Any additional comments?

    Beginning drags -- too much flowery description at the very beginning. Wasn't necessary. Once that stops and Patricia Cornwell gets into storyline -- story is gripping -- true Cornwell style. I sat in my car for 30 minutes once in a parking lot while out and about because I didn't want to miss the next part or stop listening! This is what I like about her writing -- she pulls you in and you feel like you are there, part of the action -- part of the intrigue!
