3.0 out of 5 stars Traditional formula used once too often?, 20 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Last Precinct (Hardcover)
Cornwell has suceeded in writing another good novel, but it is certainly not her best. The plot is somewhat duboius and some of the characters such as Marino and Lucy have become more extreme to the point of unbelievable in some parts of the story. Lucy is continuing to develop into the law enforcement wonder woman we have seen from previous episodes - and that is starting to stretch credibility.
That said, the novel provides a good read which will give Cornwell fans the fix they have been waiting for. The forensic details are as good as ever and Cornwell is continuing the dark atmosphere of previous books. However one wonders if the character of Kay Scarpetta and her unshakable belief in herself is getting a bit worn.
The book picks up immediately from where the last one in the series left off. As this was some time ago, unless you have just finished 'Black Notice', then the start could be a little confusing. The advice to Cornwell fans is to re- read the previous book and then start the new one - it might make a bit more sense, and provide a more enjoyable read.
Overall a good read and great to meet up with the familar characters again, however Cornwell can do better.
