I Couldn't Put it Down,
This review is from: Postmortem (Dr Kay Scarpetta) (Paperback)
Richmond is terrorized by Mr. Nobody, a serial killer. He leaves hardly any evidence behind, but he hasn't reckoned on the abilities of Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Kay Scarpetta. However, petty politics and a reporter are getting in her way and that's awfully hard for someone as self-centered as Dr. Kay who backs down when confronted by her superiors and takes her frustration out on those under her. She gets angry, she empathises with the victims, sometimes I like her, sometimes she makes me want to gag. I suppose that's because she's human, maybe too human for a novel.
However, I couldn't put the book down when I first read it, and years later when I read it again, I was up all night again. That is most certainly the mark of a five star novel.
