Predator by Patricia Cornwell

01 Oct

Dr. Kay Scarpetta, now freelancing with the National Forensic Academy in Florida, takes charge of a case that stretches from steamy Florida to snowboundBoston, one as unnerving as any she has ever faced. The teasing psychological clues lead Scarpetta and her team-Pete Marino, Benton Wesley, and Lucy Farinelli-to suspect that they are hunting someone with a cunning and malevolent mind whose secrets have kept them in the shadows, until now.

Short chapters make for a quick pace and easy to read novel. Small attention spans are not a problem. Cornwell remains graphic in forensic detail but has lost the gory edge that fascinated readers in the very beginning. While set in Florida the novel could take place anywhere. 2005, 416 pages.
