    When Ellen Lang's husband disappears with their son, she hires Elvis Cole to track him down. A quiet and seemingly submissive wife, Ellen can't even write a check without him. All she wants is to get him and her son back - no questions asked.

    John says: "Good book for the first in the series."
    "not for me"
    Overall

    I really, really tried to get into this book but it was useless. I hate to criticize narrators but it was so hard to imagine a 30 something character with that voice.

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    not so much detail, both medical and techical. Also, even speaking as Scarpetta the character brings out her numerous flaws that have intensified in herself. The sold Scarpetta mysteriess have long dissappeared and now the boring, boring stories have lost the magic


    What could Patricia Cornwell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    more mystery and less boredom, Boring, booorrriiinnnggg


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Burton?

    Don't know, but her reading of a bad book does not make her a bad narrator


    What character would you cut from Red Mist?

    Lucy


    Any additional comments?

    will not make the mistake again thinking new books by Cornwell will be as interesting as the first and will not waste my money

    It is the week before Christmas. A tanking economy has prompted Dr. Kay Scarpetta - despite her busy schedule and her continuing work as the senior forensic analyst for CNN - to offer her services pro bono to New York City's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. In no time at all, her increased visibility seems to precipitate a string of unexpected and unsettling events.

    After the last book that was a total waste, I thought the old Cornwell would come back. This has got to be the worst waste of time and money.
    Please Kathy Reichs write more

    I heard this book when I first joined Audible but I go back to it because it is so good. Everything is so vivid that I can see the characters clearly in my mind and the twists to the end are most welcome.

    Cat Delaney is a TV personality who has experienced a medical miracle - she has a new heart. One of several patients who received transplants on the same day, Cat doesn't know her donor's identity. She only knows that she feels compelled to make changes in her life. Leaving Hollywood for San Antonio to host a TV show spotlighting adoptive children with special needs, Cat reevaluates the woman she has been.

    "too much sex for me"
    Overall

    Never read (or heard) books by Sandra Brown so maybe they are all the same with so much details of the sexual encounters that I gagged. Story was intricate and a mystery until the end. Very good plot.

    Started out very strange and just when I thought it was getting good the story got so convoluted that I had a hard time understanding what was going on. It ended in such a dark, dark manner that I had a nightmare the night I finished the audio book. Very, very strange. The narrator, however, was very good.

    Leaving behind her private forensic pathology practice in Charleston, South Carolina, Kay Scarpetta accepts an assignment in New York City, where the NYPD has asked her to examine an injured man on Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric prison ward. The handcuffed and chained patient, Oscar Bane, has specifically asked for her, and when she literally has her gloved hands on him, he begins to talk - and the story he has to tell turns out to be one of the most bizarre she has ever heard.

    Becky says: "Don't waste your money"
    "pretty awful reading"
    Overall

    when the reader did the reading on the men characters it sounded awful. I thought up to now that I liked Wesley and I did kind of like the character of Marino but after this---no way
