Post-Mortem – Patricia Cornwell

20 Aug

Hanging on every word, this had me turning pages like no other book in some time.

Dr Kay Scarpetta, chief medical examiner is awoken by a call on friday evening; a woman has been brutally murdered. The fourth victim with more to follow, the hunt is on to track down the killer. As we are taken on a trip of suspicion, we are subjected to details of these murders, both at the murder scene, and on the table in the morgue.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable, suspense hugging thriller. Graphic details, mingled with tight emotions; at times i found myself unable to read fast enough.

Yes, at times, it slipped. Did we need the relationship of the medical examiner with her niece? Yes, I wanted more in the hope that a unlikley relationship may blossom….but maybe it was so close to perfection that it just needed some tweaks.

Read this book, really, you’ll love it!
