Publisher's Summary

The new Kay Scarpetta novel from the world's #1 bestselling crime writer.
Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning of something far more destructive: a terrifying terrain of conspiracy and potential terrorism on an international scale. And she is the only one who can stop it.

Too much dialog, too little story

What disappointed you about Red Mist?

The maddeningly endless dialog of worthless detail that has little to do with the story.


What was most disappointing about Patricia Cornwell???s story?

The basic story had merit, but the lack of action and the detail ruins the basic story.


Have you listened to any of Kate Burton???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The Kate Burton performance was excellent. She handled many voices, moods and nuances with interest and skill.


You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Excellent coveage of the pathology of death, poisoning, autopsy.


Any additional comments?

I considered the story a poor use of my time, but I found it hard to stop listening to the book. The listening activity was more of a challenge to finish then an intense interest in the story.

What's up with the recording quality?

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The book is typical Cornwell. Great plot, entertaining writing. But they clearly had problems recording, or went back and added words/sentences after the fact. Happens three times just in the first two chapters. Sounds like it was edited on someone's laptop. Thumbs down for technical chops.
