Very believable fiction,
By A Customer
This review is from: Postmortem (Scarpetta Novels) (Paperback)
I recently read this book on holiday in Florida and it kept me enthralled on the beach where I am usually a little bored. As an ex police officer I could immediately see that Ms Cornwell puts a great deal of research into the forensic aspect of the work which pays off. I enjoyed the picture painted of the main police officer who fits the profile of many old style detectives, and it is the interplay between his cynicism and Dr Scapiettas forensic knowledge which provides a good deal of reader enjoyment. I did feel that the ending was a little rushed and could have been strung out a bit more, with perhaps an insight into the mind of the killer. The manner of targeting of the victims by the killer was wholly believable and possible. A good read and I look forward now to going through her other offerings.
