1.0 out of 5 stars Scarpetta?, 21 May 2010
This review is from: The Scarpetta Factor: Scarpetta 17 (Hardcover)
I have been a Cornwell fan, ( well, Scarpetta fan, I never really got on with the others ) ever since The Body Farm many years ago. I wait eagerly for each new novel and pre-order them as soon as I can. I did the same with this one, and have never been so disappointed. This is no Scarpetta novel the standard of previous ones. As the above reviews have put more eloquently than I ever could, the characters have no substance any more. And what I loved about the early Scarpetta novels, the forensic pathology part, is completely missing. I started this book over a month ago and I'm only up to page 345, this has never happened before, I normally read them in 2 days tops, they are usually "can't-put-down-able", sadly not this one. Even my husband commented "This one hasn't gripped you has it?"......erm, no, it hasn't. 345 pages in and basically nothing has happened, it's the most boring Scarpetta novel EVER. I will finish it, as I always finish a book, but it will be an effort. I sincerely hope Patricia goes back to her earlier winning formula or I'm afraid she is going to lose readers of what has been up to now, a fabulous series of books.
