Customer Review

on 13 February 2002
I recently had the misfortune of giving Patricia Cornwell a chance, and, to say the least. I really regretted it.
In this book, the much vaunted character of Dr Kay Scarletti, Pathologist extraordinaire, is drawn into a web of murders which may or may not be connected. The "highly original" link in these cases is the discover of headless & limbless torsos.
So far so good.
Then comes the introduction of lost loves, long held grudges, a mutated smallpox virus and internet intrigue.
All in all it's a shabby collection of ideas, poorly executed, extremely implausible and above all totally uninvolving.
It really is a terrible, terrible book and on the evidence presented here, I cannot for the life of me figure out why Kay Scarletti is touted as such a great characted. As far as I could tell she talks a good talk and not a whole lot else.
