I enjoy both Fiction and Non Fiction Books. Not having the best of eye sight, Audible books are a bonus. Great stuff.
The story was great and the reader (Lorelie King?) was an absolute perfect choice for reading this novel. She didn't just read it like some narrators, she made a performance out of reading the book and I found myself listening to it in the car on the way to and from work, as well as night time when I went to bed. Truly excellent stuff and I had problems putting it down and not listening to it at every opportunity.
I didn't really have a favorite character. I found all the characters in the book were great.
The emphasis she put in certain parts of the book made it so much more enjoyable. I'll be looking for books that she narrates as a result in the future.
The twists and turns which resulted in surprises that you didn't see coming.
An excellent book - highly recommend. I don't often take the time to write reviews of books but this one moved me so much that thought it earned a review!
It was well written and I was fairly captivated, but there are so many referals to the previous book in the Scarpetta series that I would definitely recommend reading that first.
This book contains a lot of cursing which I think is unneccesary. I expected more from Patricia. Crude language do not sell a book. I will not buy andy of her books again!!
"Serial Killers and other nasty men"
Fairly well plotted. One is soon drawn deeper into complexities of a mystery and a conspiracy. Good on the details of autopsies, procedures and what certain findings indicate about cause of death.
Some interesting characters; it was particularly interesting to read this book in the light of an interview in the Times recently with Patricia Cornwell as a result of which one can spot many autobiographical strands from her own personal experiences which are woven into the novel and which give her principal character, Scarpetta, real credibility.
Written very much with a woman's voice (which makes sense, of course) I was troubled at one early stage in the book that the world seemed to be divided into good guys (female) and bad guys (male) but this view mellowed a little as I progressed.
A reasonably good read for this kind of book.
Very well read by Lorelie King who gives each character its own voice and reflects the moods of each.
A very good Patricia Cornwell. I have read lots but this one is good, they are probably best read in order to make some sense of the history in them.
This book has a very interesting twist in that it supposedly starts from the end. I liked this style and it worked well.
