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