Patricia Cornwell knows how to write fast-paced crime novels that will keep you reading. Her lead character, medical examiner Kay Scarpetta, is intelligent and persistant while she solves CSI-style mysteries.
A brutal serial killer is stalking Richmond, Virginia and Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta finds herself in the middle of it. This is the first in the Kay Scarpetta series. I enjoy forensic science so I enjoyed this book. The story held my interest and I liked Kay, and I'm going to try the second book in the series.
