Publisher's Summary

Late one night Beryl Madison turns off her burglar alarm, puts down her gun and opens her door to the man who has stalked and terrorized her for months. Hours later, her brutally mutilated body lies in the city morgue. As Scarpetta begins searching for the microscopic clues to the killer’s identity, one question keeps nagging her: why did Beryl let him in?

Well writen & performed. Kept me guessing .

Would you consider the audio edition of Body of Evidence to be better than the print version?

I think C.J. Critt is an excellent performer and draws me into the book more than if I were reading it from the written book.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, the evidence that was presented kept me guessing about the motive and who was the culprit. Scarpetta is caught "off guard" and finds herself in a dangerous situation.

What about C. J. Critt’s performance did you like?

She does other character voices in such a way that the listener always knows which character is speaking.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but it wasn't possible. I like listening to books so I can perform tasks at the same time. It makes whatever task I am doing go much faster.

Worst Performance EVER!

Would you try another book from Patricia Cornwell and/or C. J. Critt?

I love Patricia Cornwell. I have read many of her books and have enjoyed them a lot. I would never buy another audio book narrated by CJ Critt.

What did you like best about this story?

I do truly enjoy the Kay Scarpetta books

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She read so slowly and with an awkward cadence. She took loud breaths every few words. It was so distracting and awful that I can't really even like the book as much as I could have if I had read it.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Good story. Good story line.
