  • What I didn't like was the fact, that IMHO, one of the main persons, in this book was more or less left out...That is, details, as to his thoughts, motives, what made him the was he was...there are IMHO, a vageness, about the 'wolf-man", that should have been included...

    If any one has ever read "THEWATCHER", by Dean Koontz, will understand what I'm trying to point out...his "MONSTER", was given, feelings it expressed, how it felt, why it was angery, in short, he had substance, you couldn't help but "feel", for the poor thing...this was missing here....another charector in the book, her motives, were never made clear, either, before she was 'rubbed out', near the books end.....she was nasty, but I never grasped her true motives or reasons for being that way..

    I think/ believe, more defining, of the story line was needed...I truly felt let down, at the ending..

  • Not one of her best but definitely a good read with an interesting plot.. Love all of her novels, they only take me a day or two to read because they are so good. Now that I have to read a romantic novel for school I can barely force myself to read it. Cornwell has spoiled me!! I've read almost all in the series. I love the science behind this book, she does an amazing job researching. Point of Origin is another great one by her if you are into the more forensic books.

  • This is the tenth Kay Scarpetta novel, and it might be time for Cornwell to move in a new direction. The early books were made compelling by the science of the medical examiner, solving crimes based on clues found on the bodies - trace fibers and hairs and intriguing wounds. However, the series has devolved into a Kay Scarpetta pity-party. This seems like about the fourth or fifth book in a row where Kay's deep and traumatic emotional life pretty much drives the story. The monstrous villain with the one-in-a-billion medical disorder is not new, nor are the attacks on Kay's house and office. But her constant whining about her emotional distress, the erosion of the Lucy character to nothing but a gun-and-an-attitude, and the cut-and-paste story line make for pretty tedious reading. Worst of all, the autopsy scenes around which the early stories pivoted have now become mere sidelines, tasks that Kay must perform between her breathless rasslin' matches with the bad guy and her teary memories of Benton. The Scarpetta series is stale, Cornwell needs to move on to a new theme. I've read my final Kay Scarpetta story.

  • I loved the early Scarpetta mysteries. The last few have been pretty lame. It must be hard to write this type of stuff because I found Kathy Reich's second book over the top also. Who really believes that MEs are that involved in these cases that they are ever in danger? And when was the last time you saw a prominent newscast or newspaper including pictures of the ME? Implausible, hard to believe and tiresome. Kay is too self-important and claims to be an expert in everything from scuba diving to medical examining to computers to lesbians to FBI operations and now sex with the new young guy. Scarpetta is not likeable and has become so angry and paranoid that I don't want to read about her anymore. I realized in this book that Benton might be the only character I liked at all and now he's gone. And I never knew Kay loved Benton that much-- she fought with him all the time like she does with everyone else. Well it's all fiction and didn't happen-- isn't happening-- and the characters are not real. Hope her next one is better. Now I'm looking forward to Sue Grafton.

  • This book picks right up from the previous installment, Black Notice, so I recommend that you read that one first. The first few chapters are a bit tedious as Kay Scarpetta goes through a lot of introspection from almost being murdered in Black Notice. I was hoping for more action and it slowly comes around, but not to the same suspense as the earlier books of the series that made me turn page after page.

    I think if you are a Scarpetta series fan, you'd like this book, as you've been bringing the history of Kay, Benton, Lucy and Marino along with you. I think many reviewers here are a bit harsh, even though this is not as good as the first few in the series. If you are new to the series, this would probably be a 3 star book.

  • OK, so the "Black Notice" of the title is a dead body that shows up in the first couple of chapters. By page 150 they still haven't even finished the autopsy. The plot is buried in layers of irrelevant and tedious detail presented with a tortured writing style.
    If that weren't bad enough, the majority of the first half of the book is dedicated not to this intruiging story line, but - and I'm not kidding here - to a burocratic power struggle amongst egotistical civil servants. I cannot remember every having read a more tedious, uninspiring, lengthy and pointless subplot (although I haven't read anything by Tom Clancy recently). And this whole subplot is based on the premise of a computer security breach that even the most novice user of AOL would find laughable.
    Throw in a cast of annoying, unsympathetic characters (not even Kay or Mariano are even the least bit endearing), most of whom are unbelievable to boot, and you get a read that is tiresome and pointless.
    Worst book I've read in quite some time.

  • I bought the book because of the title. As I expected, was intriguing, suspendfull and exacting. The story deals with forensic investigations of corpses the Medical Examiner deals with. For those that enjoy forensics, and the science of it I recommend.
