Serial Killers and other nasty men

Fairly well plotted. One is soon drawn deeper into complexities of a mystery and a conspiracy. Good on the details of autopsies, procedures and what certain findings indicate about cause of death.
Some interesting characters; it was particularly interesting to read this book in the light of an interview in the Times recently with Patricia Cornwell as a result of which one can spot many autobiographical strands from her own personal experiences which are woven into the novel and which give her principal character, Scarpetta, real credibility.
Written very much with a woman's voice (which makes sense, of course) I was troubled at one early stage in the book that the world seemed to be divided into good guys (female) and bad guys (male) but this view mellowed a little as I progressed.
A reasonably good read for this kind of book.
Very well read by Lorelie King who gives each character its own voice and reflects the moods of each.

Patricia Cornwell

A very good Patricia Cornwell. I have read lots but this one is good, they are probably best read in order to make some sense of the history in them.

This book has a very interesting twist in that it supposedly starts from the end. I liked this style and it worked well.
