Going through the motions,
By A Customer
This review is from: Predator (Hardcover)
I wish Cornwell had stopped writing Scarpetta back when we would have been left desperate for more. Now she's obviously going through the motions. This one was particularly disappointing - without wanting to give anything away, the 'twist' at the end is laughable, a cliché of the genre that I would have hoped Cornwell was above using. And I can't take Benton and Kay's relationship seriously any more. In this book, she's angry with him for keeping something from her that she considers a huge breach of trust, which had me shouting at the book: 'What about when he pretended to be dead for two years??' It's infuriating, and I only read them now when I'm given them (but I'm always given them). I certainly won't be spending any more money on these books, which is a shame as I used to adore Scarpetta.
