Publisher's Summary

Dublin, Ireland and Richmond, Virginia: separated by thousands of miles - linked by murder.
Five dismembered, beheaded bodies were found in Ireland five years ago - now four have been discovered in the States. But the tenth corpse in Virginia is different. A copy-cat killing. Ghoulish, perhaps, but not unusual. Then abject terror grips Scarpetta and her colleagues when the next body is found with a clear and horrifying message: the killer is armed with the most lethal weapon on earth - smallpox.
A sadistic serial killer, the weapon a deadly virus. The eighth novel in the best-selling Dr Kay Scarpetta series.

"Few writers match Patricia Cornwell when it comes to writing crime." ( The Daily Express)

Oh dear.

What would have made Unnatural Exposure better?

A coherent story line.

What was most disappointing about Patricia Cornwell’s story?

Lack of character development. Lots of unanswered questions and pointless distractions which were not tied into anything. Complete disregard for common sense. Regular characters not treated with respect.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of C. J. Critt?

Someone who had less of an edge to their voice. The British voice was just dreadful. Made Dick Van Dyke seem authentic.

What character would you cut from Unnatural Exposure?

Kay Scarpetta. She was a complete bore in this book.

Any additional comments?

This was a real disappointment. I have enjoyed all the other books to date but this was a real step backwards. Scarpetta has no redeeming features in this book at all.

Another great Cornwell story

Love Cornwell’s books. Well researched, pacy and good narration. Scarlett’s is one of my favourite characters so always drawn to these books
