Point of Origin is a pretty typical scarpetta novel that's more action than forensic focused. That's fine by me but Karen White the narrator must have graduated from the William Shatner School of Overacting. Some reviewers didn't like CJ Critt the previous narrator but I thought she was perfect and any issues with narration were a result of production and editing and not Critt. White has a truly annoying pattern of pauses at inappropriate moments in the story telling. She doesn't do it when speaking as Marino, Lucy or other characters but when speaking as Scarpetta or as the storyteller its so annoying I nearly stopped the audiobook. Rather than saying "I went to the store". She would say "I went ................ To the store". I noticed that she's not the narrator of future Scarpetta novels so I suppose everyone else noticed this as well and didn't want listeners to break their iPods or phones throwing them across the room in frustration.

The overall story line was great; in typical Patricia Cornwell fashion. The narrator performance was absolutely terrible, and at times unbearable.
