Over the past few months I have been collecting and reading the Scarpetta books and on the whole have enjoyed them. I am currently reading the book Scarpetta. I have read some comments on various sites complaining of the books. I personally don't feel they are as bad as people make out but I didn't like the rushed endings of the last couple e.g. when the killer and Kay finally 'meet' instead of a stand off or chase sequence the chapter ends and the next chapter has everyone just carrying on...

My comment/question is the same as the last poster. I read Ms. Cornwell's book where Benton was killed, burned in an arsonist's fire, but in which of her books do we learn what really happened & how it is that he is actually alive, etc?
Many thanks- currently reading Red Mist.

I read the book where Benton "died". I can't find the one where he "came back"?

I have read every single Patricia Cornwall book, including her opinion on jack the ripper. Which I disagree with. Is it just me or was scarpetta written by a ghost writer. Either she is losing her incredible way with words, or she has sold out....

After struggling through The Front, I thoroughly enjoyed Scarpetta and Scarpetta Factor. Michelle, I suggest you take a short brake and then dive back in (after a nice plate of pasta with olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, capers and calamata olives). Hopefully you can get back in the Scarpetta groove like I did. Good luck!

Patricia's books are fantastic and my collection is only missing a few. I read and reread all of her books regularly. It kind of makes you realize that other people have it much worse than you do. Never stop writing your fantastic stories.

I am a huge fan of Patricia Cornwell's. I have read almost every book she has out. I happened onto her books one day by complete accident and haven't been able to stop reading them. I buy all of her books when I can. Kay Scarpetta is my favorite!! Hats off to Patricia for always one-upping her last book. I am looking forward to reading the Scarpetta Factor. There are no better crime novels to read!!! Keep up the good work. Always looking forward to the next book!!!! Your #1 fan in Idaho!!!!
