Classic Cornwell territory with...a sharp political element that will ensure the book isn't on George Bush's bedside table Daily Express Serving up an Ace...Cornwell is firmly back on the money here. Daily Mirror Patricia Cornwell is the queen of gritty, grisly, crime fiction writing and her latest offering doesn't disappoint. Book of the Dead will keep you gripped throughout Heat "The reason we read novels about the forensic investigation of crime is not artistic decorum but a fascination with how things work. This is what Cornwell has always provided, and it is an area in which she does not disappoint." Times Literary Supplement 'Hannibal Lecter, eat your liver out. Tersely written, elaborately plotted and crammed with research, Cornwell's writing has always been hard-boiled - but this one would crack a paving stone if dropped.'
The latest in the bestselling series featuring fiction's original pathologist, Dr Kay Scarpetta.See all Product description

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The murders and crime story were much more carefully thought out and interesting, and there was an attempt to get the main characters into a more engaging story but it didn't work.
For no reason they've all moved to Charleston and you have to bond with a new life and set of circumstances, that takes a lot of effort, but not only that there was an attempt to bring back an old celebrity as an almost 'cameo' character. It was still very confused and there are a lot of threads left untied by the end that was a bit frustrating!
This is a good one to read for the 'who dun it' factor, but you will be left disapointed by the obvious boredom Cornwall now feels for her main characters, and her desperation to give them some kind of story line.
I loved all her other books right up until Dr.Scarpetta left Richmond. After that.... well who knows what possessed Ms Cornwell to write such drivel. She uses anacronyms without explaining what they are and expects the readers to sit there and go "oh yes I know what that is" I don't think I'll buy another of her books again. If you thought Isle of Dogs was bad enough this latest one just creeps ahead in taking the biscuit.
Sorry this one left me very disappointed and sorry I bought it.
