I went to the libary the other day and saw that patricia cornwall has a new book the title is Port Mortuary (Kay Scarpetta Series #18) . I have read the Kay Scatepetta series since they first started flowing from the pen of Cornwall with much enjoyment and when I saw this new one I checked it out with glee and went home antisempating a few hours of enjoyment.
Critic Jem Bloomfeld said it best....Whatever her faults, you can’t criticise Patricia Cornwell for sticking in a rut. Port Mortuary, her latest novel about the forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta, uses a new narrative device to explore fresh plot territory. But the resulting book is exceptionally difficult to like.
I agree with Bloomfeld I found this new book the most usless piece of work I have ever read by Cornwall. To me it was like wadeing through a field of mud mired up to my knees.
I did finish the book but I employed my sister's method of reading in the last quarter of the work I skimmed the pages a second at a glance and never missed anything except a lot of useless words. When finished I was relieved to to be rid of the whole thing. The first half I keep waiting for the show to start but sadley it just keep being a mud wallow to the finish.
