3.0 out of 5 stars Unnatural Exposure, 5 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Unnatural Exposure (Scarpetta Novels) (Paperback)
You could review this book, number eight in the Dr Kay Scarpetta books by Patricia Cornwell, one of two ways.
On the one hand it is another good solid addition to the Scarpetta series of thrillers. It has all the usual ingredients, gory discoverings, Scarpetta's scientific examinations, a ruthless killer and the usual accompanying characters.
One the other hand it is another good solid addition to the Scarpetta series of thrillers that offers nothing new to what has gone before. Indeed some of the regular characters are becoming so changed from their original conception you really wonder if you want to carry on with the series. There's not enough of Pete Marino in this book for a start, niece Lucy is still an enormous pain in the neck and Benton Wesley seems to be becoming a needy wimp with his constant whinging to Scarpetta. Scarpetta herself is so driven at times she must be an absolute nightmare to work for.
What the series really needs is an insertion of some new blood, or at the very least the re-introduction of some the excellent minor characters we saw in previous offerings. Why can't sister Dorothy, who has only made one actual appearance in "The Body Farm", or even lawyer Nicholas Grueman who appeared in "Cruel and Unusual" reappear in some form or another to give the series a much needed injection of life.
