Book Review – Body of Evidence

I do not usually like mysteries. I seem to have problems actually caring about whodunit, so when my sister began pestering me to read Patricia Cornwell, I was indifferent. I finally worked up the interest to read the first novel in the Scarpetta series, Body of Evidence. I admit that I enjoyed the read. By the end of the book, the reader has a grip on the crime, the victims, and the main character. I liked that Cornwell gives the reader insight into Kay Scarpetta, the Chief Medical Examiner for Virginia. I tend to like more forensic related mysteries and this had plenty of that. The mystery itself was unpredictable which made the reading much more enjoyable.

Recommended.

–Jane, what to read next?
