3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of a Plod, 28 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Dust: Scarpetta 21 (Hardcover)
Have been a fan of the Scarpetta series over the years but did find this latest one a bit of a plod ~ hard going to get through. To stretch a crime novel to almost 500 pages and keep the momentum and interest going is not easy and in this case is not achieved. 100 pages could have been chopped off with no hindrance to plot development. Pace sagged in the middle and was uneven thereafter. Too much time was spent repeating past history of the main characters which whilst of interest to a new reader of this series is already familiar to the regular followers of the series. The profile at the end was interesting.It's almost as if the author is uncertain of character development and is overcompensating for this by repetition and needless elaboration. Howe`ver I remain a fan and hope the next novel is back on track
