seem to find anything appealing about her Thankfully the I the I m warming to secondary characters like Wesley Benton and Pete Marino but even then I wish my enjoyment of the characters was so much established by now I kind of figure if I don t love them all by book four then I probably never will Review Cruel Unusual by Patricia Cornwell the fourth in the Kay Scarpetta series was a solid book with a little edge than some of the others hence the 4 rating Two key. Stato condannato Cosa lega uesti due fatti avvenuti a più di dieci anni di distanza e ai uali faranno seguito numerosi altri delitti Chi è lo spietato assassino E soprattutto perchè Kay Scarpetta è la principale sospetta.

review ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ó Patricia CornwellI only really read this as I was sick the other day at work and needed some way to keep awake in the evening of my long day with nothing to do With the small choice available in the staff room it was either that James Patterson or the Twilight books Tough choice I m very rarely without a book or two on my person so fool meIn the interests of disclosure I actually used to read the Scarpetta novels when younger probably read about the first 6 or 7 but eventually gave up when I realised I didn t care enough Much like Patterson s Alex Cross books It was only at the very end of this that I realised I have probably read this before That it took me so long to realise says a lotWhat I now remember is that Cornwell s prose is rather dull bordering on tedious at times and unnecessarily bogged down in technical argon in this particular case loads of talk about UNIX which becomes very annoying It s all rather perfunctory as we cruise through the story which though at times interesting never really geared up any excitement or suspense Everything plays out and then after a few small revelations it ends in an unsatisfying manner
with little in the way of closure leaving the way for the next 3 bookslittle in the way of closure leaving the way for the next 3 books wrote to continue on some of the charactersWhen you add the fact that Kay Scarpetta is actually uite an unlikeable character and her niece Lucy profoundly annoying it ust makes it all a little difficult to engage with I think I ll avoid reading any of them again in the future unless really stuck for choice nothing will ever make me read the rest of the Twilight books This will be returning to sit on the shelves at work rather than my bookcases There was something slightly off putting about this fourth novel in the Kay Scarpetta series While key personal details were skimmed over trivialized and told post the actual events in past novels in Cruel and Unusual Cornwell killed off an important if not often seen character between books dropping the news in an offhand manner and never actually dealing with it or its implications for her heroine Granted the focus of the series is not on Dr Scarpetta s personal life but when said personal life becomes central to both the current case and the lead character s very personality then the issues which shape Kay as a person need to be explored on a deeper levelSpeaking of Dr Scarpett a personal life having an impact upon Cruel and Unusual s cases this seems to be a pattern for Cornwell her heroine gets way too involved in her work Given the nature of her responsibilities their depth and weight this is to be expected to a certain degree but to feature Kay as such an integral part of every single crime whether she s a potential victim a victim s friend or a suspect by Cornwell using this approach too much it s going to become staid and predictable Rather the plot device should be saved for special books should be used sporadically and should be something that is unexpected for readers at this point the uestion is ust At this point the uestion is ust is Dr Scarpetta going to wind up in trouble this timeFinally despite multiple murders some of which hit a little too close to home for Cruel and Unusual s heroine the novel seemed to move much slower than some of Cornwell s other Scarpetta books It wasn t really until the last fourth of the book when the pace seemed to pick up when the suspense seemed to really pull in the reader Plus because of the nature of the clues the hacking the feathers the average reader in all likelihood would struggle to follow their trails and could very easily get bogged down in all the technical argon bandied about Essentially this novel wasn t as reader friendly for those who like to attempt to solve the cases right along with Kay As a result Cruel and Unusual wasn t as entertaining of a read While the series strengths are still there the varied natures of the homicides the friendship between Kay and Marino and the great mix between science and psychology there were flaws to be found the biggest of which is the fact that at the end of this book the murderer is still at la.

Rge and after than four hundred pages nothing feels resolved whether professional or personal for Dr Scarpetta This book made me feel like I d missed a book between this one and the last one I actually stopped and double checked because some very major things in Kay s life seemed to have happened between books and they are ust sort of unceremoniously dropped in our laps I hope these events at least happened to make way for other potential things to happen view spoiler Basically in the first chapter you find out that Mark who had been a love interest for Kay over the past few books had been killed That s it no pomp or circumstance It happened and we missed it Oh and she uit smoking I know these books are about the work Kay does but if you introduce major characters I would hope we would see where their relationships with Kay go At least now I hope there is potential for a romance with Moreno I like him and have since the beginning I know she keeps trying to present him as a fatherly type figure but it doesn t come off that way He comes off as a man protecting the women he loves Although I don t know why Kay is kind of unlikeable but this isn t a spoiler so hide spoiler Number four in the Dr Scarpetta series and for me the best to dateI found this book to be a bit of an on the edge of your seat type thriller that the other threeI found the whole premise of the book intriguing A death row prisoner is executed and the Dr Scarpetta is called on to do the autopsy Everything seems to be straight forward until fingerprints start turning up at the scene of recent murders that belong to the executed prisonerWhen the police investigate they find a lot of missing evidence from the office of the Chief Medical Examiner Dr Scarpetta finds the she is under suspicion More information comes to light that further implicates Dr Scarpetta With the help of her friends Detective Pete Marino and FBI Agent Benton Wesley Dr Scarpetta embarks on a fight to clear her name and to discover how a man that she did an autopsy on is out there killing peopleThis book took a hold of me right from page one and kept me held until the end There s enough dead ends to keep you guessing and keep you readingNot so much in the way of solving by forensics It s about old fashioned police work An engrossing read and I give it a five star recommendation SPOILERS 263 One of my favourite Scarpetta mysteries and another that gets to keep its five star rating It sets up a long running battle between Scarpetta and Gault and her continuing problems with the politiciansher bosses I had forgotten the way things big things happen off screen so to speak and was practically having a heart attack when Mark s
death was casually brought up which left mewas casually brought up which left me I d somehow missed a book Then I remembered things happen in me thinking I d somehow missed a book Then I remembered things happen in time that passes between the books and I calmed downLucy was my favourite character for a long time I forget what happened with her from around book 10 so I m not sure whether she continues to be my favourite I ll see when I get there and this is the first book where she really gets to shine and show her future potential If she was a whiz with UNIX I can t wa Cruel Unusual is incredibly exciting I couldn t put it down I passed the last three days being tremendously entertained by book 4 in the Dr Kay Scarpetta seriesScarpetta is slowly recovering from the death of her unreuited love Mark James FBI agent who was killed in a terrorist bombing in London in the previous book She is going about her duties as Virginia s Chief Medical Examiner emotionally numbed However several cases of murder begin to interest her especially since they appear linked to a Killer Ronnie Joe Waddell He Ronnie Joe Waddell He not possibly have committed them although his fingerprints were found at the various sites of the murders and the brutal manner of killing he had done were copied perfectly But Waddell was executed by electrical chair at the local prison on the same day the first body mutilated in the same style as he was known to do is found Before long other bodi. Uella fredda notte di dicembre Poche ore prima è stato ritrovato un bambino di tredici anni col corpo orribilmente mutilato un episodio di violenza sessuale che mostra inuietanti affinità con l'assassino per cui Waddell è.
