1.0 out of 5 stars Disappionting, 29 Nov. 2006

This review is from: Predator (Paperback)
Just like the past few books in the series, this was such alet down. I used to eagerly wait for the next book, but now I don't think I'll bother. Firstly, Patricia go back to the old style of writing, first person, past tense made the stories so much more gripping, the new format just creates a disjointed and confusing read. Secondly, what the hell happened at the end? I was left feeling cheated out of a decent ending, although by that point I didn't really care.

Also, how old is Scarpetta supposed to be? She was 40ish in Postmortem when Lucy was about 10, so now Lucy is 30ish I guess that makes Scarpetta 60 and Marino approaching his seventies. I think its time they retired.

This book is totally fogettable and nothing like the fantastic crime novels Cornwell deservedly earned acclaim for. My advice would be, don't bother reading it, try someone like Kathy Reiches instead.
