In Post-Mortem, Kay Scarpetta is trying to find maniac killer who’s leaving very few clues for her to follow. Someone is trying to interfere with the investigation while the body count continues to rise. Kay could become the next victim as her department comes under scrutiny.
I thoroughly enjoyed this one from Cornwell. It has a very good story that is straightforward and easy to follow (unlike a few of her other works). The characters are strong and believable. However, Scarpetta seems too hard-hearted for me. I don’t like soft, mushy characters, but Kay just seems too “cold”.
Highly recommended. I have a few more from Cornwell that I have to read yet. I hope most of them are at least as good as this one.
