Scarpetta by Patricia Cornwell

Reviewed by Elaine Pasquali

Coroner, Kay Scarpetta, and her husband, Benton (a forensic psychiatrist), become involved in the murder of Terri, a “little person.” The murder was extremely sadistic and another little person, Oscar, is a prime suspect. The single murder evolves into serial murder. Policeman Pete Marino, who in a drunken stupor had sexually assaulted Kay, is a lead investigator. Kay’s niece, Lucy, a computer expert, handles the internet aspect of the murders.
Reader Alert: There were paragraphs and pages that were too sadistically descriptive for me to read. This is a riveting, fast moving read. Once again, Patricia Cornwell wrote a winner.

How many stars does the book deserve?: ☆☆☆☆
