All That Remains: Scarpetta 3 (Kay Scarpetta) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
In Richmond, Virginia, young lovers are dying. So far, four couples in the area have disappeared, only to be found months later as mutilated corpses. When the daughter of the president's newest drug czar vanishes along with her boyfriend, Dr. Kay Scarpetta knows time is short. Following a macabre trail of evidence that ties the present homicides to a grisly crime in the past, Kay must draw upon her own personal resources to track down a murderer who is as skilled at eliminating clues as Kay is at finding them...

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There is still too much detail in the red herrings and in the ramblings about storms in Virginia, and Marino still hasn't learned to use the plural of the verb "was" (surely someone could clue him in because it's annoying and makes him look stupid), but it is very interesting to see the growth in Patricia Cornwell's style. She can certainly entertain the reader.

This isn't really a murder mystery. I mean there are people killed, and Pete Marino, Benton Wesley, and Kay Scarpetta do some investigating, but there is no way anyone can actually work out who the murderer was. The way he is found has is a 2 step process, each of which his to have odds so astronomic, that they wouldn't have happened AT ALL in real life. The odds of it happening have to be something akin to being downed in an airplane, while on your way to pick up up your lottery winnings, after having been attacked by a shark, while surfing. In short, vanishingly small. There is no way that the murderer would suddenly move from 20-something couples, to another, significantly older couple, unless we need to have story move forward.
So, in short, if a story relies on a fluke like that, then I'm going to mentally check out, if I'm honest.
The denouement isn't particularly satisfying either. One character who could have been useful in future books in the series, is killed off, and we don't get the killers motivation, beyond him being a psycho, which seems to satisfy Ms Cornwall, but which I find disappointing.
In this book we look more in depth to Kay's personal life and how in some ways everything hangs by a thread, and how people at the top of their profession are under so much pressure by so many people.
Marino's wife Doris has left him, I found myself asking why at the time Kay had not been bothered to find out this information?
Mark has left Kay leaving her sad and lonely.
Benton is holding information back on the most recent of killings leaving the task harder to solve for those directly involved, and hars criticism from those most intimately involved.
We have a serial killer or killers, who is targeting couples, no evidence is left at the scenes or so it would seem? Kay is angry that the lastest murder has found the two victims moved when she arrives? But not all is what it seems, even Marino is left out of the loop, Benton is being harsh and over critical in relation to Kay, telling her what to do!!! Mark then turns up? Kay turns to her old friend Abby Turnbull the acclaimed news paper journalist - but is she to be trusted? In fact who can Kay trust?
This book is yet again a masterpiece even on the second reading.
