What a shame,
This review is from: The Body Farm (Scarpetta 5) (Kindle Edition)
What a shame, this book had so much potential and the story line was good but there were several flaws in my opinion. The most annoying one for me was the person they suspect in the beginning of commiting the murder followed on from another book and, even though ive read them all in order, its been a while and i kept waiting for a recap in the book, like Kay thinking about her first encounter with him etc etc but it didnt come and i felt all at sea! It was like id missed a book out and i know i havent so i think thats really bad of Patricia Cornwell to leave us in the lurch like that!
The story with Lucy was cleverly weaved into the plot and i enjoyed it, personally i think it could have been a book on its own if she fleshed it out and added a bit more murder into it but thats my opinion.
I really wanted to give this book 5 stars cos i love Dr Scarpetta and the stories but unfortunately she fell a little short of her usual standard. To many ideas in one book that werent fully explained or exploited in my opinion, but deffinately worth a read if you want to follow Dr Kay Scarpetta's adventures because it will get you through.
