Excellent read.

Quite a suspenseful tale, this one. A decomposing body in a shipping container. A shot and badly beaten and bitten corner store clerk. Interpol. And in the midst of all of this, someone is trying to ruin Dr. Scarpetta’s reputation by hacking email and by conducting an online chat “Ask Dr. Scarpetta”. Another great offering from Cornwell. 4.5 stars.

Now this is the Patricia Cornwell writing that is that is awesome

There was nothing I didn't like about this book. It moved, it had a point and there was more dialogue instead of the monotonous repetition. It kept my full attention. Kate Reading is excellent and she really brings the characters to life. The more recent books are nothing like this. Patricia get back to your original style. And don't forget to keep Kate Reading with you.
