Synopsis

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.

About the Author

Patricia Cornwell is a Miami born, contemporary crime novelist. Her books usually feature the heroine Dr. Kay Scarpetta, who is a medical examiner. After a way sad childhood, Cornwall graduated from Davidson College with a degree in English. She wrote a biography of a family friend entitled, “A Time for Remembering”, then renamed “Ruth, A Portrait: The Story of Ruth Bell Graham” in 1983. After working in a Virginia medical examiners for six years, she wrote the first installment of her “Scarpetta” series entitled “Postmortem”. Her six year job was valuable in including a lot of forensic science details in her “Scarpetta” series. Her novels are considered to have influenced the creation of the TV series on forensics such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Cold Case. In the same vein Cornwell made a brief appearance on the Criminal Minds episode “True Genius”, as herself.

There is no doubt that Patricia Cornwell is a good writer and I have learned a few things about forensics from her books. It seems that every novel she writes gets more boring and I spend my time plodding through the 500 pages only to be rewarded with a feeling of disappointment and regret I spent so much time on it. That is doubly true with RED MIST. It is rare I dont finish a book but I deserted this book a number of times before I was thankfully done. To me it was just the same old, same old and a repetition of past events and characters behavior. Her books are never uplifting and I feel a sneeze of hopelessness when i read one. I am not always looking for happy endings. I am realistic enough to know life isnt always good but I would like something *positive* from her novels and it is just not there to me. It is not Scarpetta as much as her other characters I dislike. They are always the same and I dont see any growth in them. I have to identify with a character or I cant enjoy a book no matter how well it is written. So not the greatest reading experience for me this time and I recommend skipping it and if a person hasnt read anything by Cornwell before i suggest reading her earlier novels which in my opinion are much better than RED MIST.
