Publisher's Summary

We enter The Last Precinct through the reverberating aftershocks of Black Notice, inconceivably finding Virginia's Chief Medical Examiner, Kay Scarpetta, an object of suspicion and criminal investigation. The nightmare on Scarpetta's doorstep continues as she discovers that the so-called Werewolf murders may have extended to New York City and into the darkest corners of her past. When a formidable prosecutor, a female assistant district attorney, is brought into the case, Scarpetta must struggle to make what she knows to be the truth prevail against mounting and unnerving evidence to the contrary. Tested in every way, she turns inward to ask: Where do you go when there is nowhere left? The answer is the Last Precinct.

The Last Precinct is the 11th book in the Kay Scarpetta series.

    Story
    "Cornwell Does it Again, Almost"
    Where does The Last Precinct rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks around 15 out of 25. The story was a little slow, and there was a lot of extemporaneous information given. If you could edit out the "dead wood" you would have a much more riveting storyline.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Kay Scarpetta herself. She is the whole reason I read her adventures.Her thought processes and willingness to act keep me coming back for more.


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

    Kate Reading brings the characters to life. I will definitely look for more of her work.

    "I give it a C."

    Very sloooow. A lot of analysis, not much to keep the reader interested. Not one of my favorites.

    "Cornwell & Reading - Perfect Together!"

    The book is excellent, Scarpetta is as usual and Kate Reading is the best. The Scarpetta novels keep me on my treadmill and make my commute to work bearable!

    "Not her best"

    This book is wraught with anger and makes the reader feel a little uncomfortable. I guess exploring the aftermath of practically being killed would result in some discomfort, but it was harder for me to read than the other Scarpetta books. I'll definitely continue the Scarpetta journey, but don't recommend this for a first time reader of Cornwell.
