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.
–Jane, what to read next?
