Editorial Reviews

Review

“Scarpetta is back at her former job as chief medical examiner for the state of Virginia. She has a lot of cleaning up to do… [Cornwell] pulls it off nicely. In fact, she pulls off the whole book nicely. Scarpetta's return to her Virginia roots feels just right.” -- Booklist

“When it comes to the forensic sciences, nobody can touch Cornwell.” -- New York Times Book Review

“Cornwell’s fans will welcome the latest Kay Scarpetta mystery... Following the twists of the cyber hacking, and delving into the death of the young woman, will give Cornwell fans another great read with their favorite neurotic medical examiner. Have fun!”  -- Suspense Magazine on Chaos

“In Scarpetta, Patricia Cornwell has a character as strong as any in popular fiction.” -- Wall Street Journal

“In this tense forensic thriller, an ingenious killer threatens to destroy that which Kay Scarpetta loves most—her family.” -- Daily News on Flesh and Blood

“Bestseller Cornwell’s thrilling 22nd novel featuring Dr. Kay Scarpetta . . . pits the chief medical examiner against a threat uncomfortably close to home. . . . Series fans may be pleasantly shocked by the return of a once-vanquished nemesis.” -- Publishers Weekly on Flesh and Blood

“Patricia Cornwell has created characters with real emotions and life experiences, and she provides them with more than enough danger to make things interesting. Dr. Scarpetta has become a good friend.” -- MysteryPlayground.net on Chaos

“Lots of cutting-edge forensic detail and some revelatory character moments.” -- Publishers Weekly on Chaos

“While Scarpetta’s character has flaws, she is still a powerful female protagonist and she offers the reader an amazing calculating approach to investigation. I am always amazed at the passion that she has for her position. . . . A fast engaging read.” -- Dad of Divas Reviews on Chaos

“There is a quiet intensity to Ms. Cornwell’s writing that compels you to read, then the eeriness sets in. . . . With Chaos, once again Patricia Cornwell mesmerizes with her astounding scientific knowledge, her keen ear for dialogue and the human psyche, all woven together flawlessly.” -- FreshFiction.com on Chaos

“Thrilling…. Readers new to Cornwell will find themselves involved from the very first page, as will the veterans. Chaos is one book you should not miss.” -- Bookreporter.com

“Cornwell is still the ace of forensic science mysteries. Dr. Kay Scarpetta and her family and friends just keep growing as characters, and Cornwell’s plots are still taut and tangled enough to make readers afraid to miss even a bit of minutiae. With Flesh and Blood, Cornwell is at the top of her game.” -- RT Book Reviews

“Dr. Kay Scarpetta… [is] an awesome force in the field of forensic science.” -- New York Times Book Review on Flesh and Blood

“Everyone knows Scarpetta; she has the wit, intelligence, and strength that any forensic sleuth should own. This never-stop action plot is yet another gift to readers from Patricia Cornwell-a literary artist that is never going to stop writing some of the best and most memorable thrillers out there.” -- Suspense Magazine on Flesh and Blood

“Stir phony IRS agents and wisecracking Boston cops and a few red herrings into the mix, and you’ve got the makings of a real puzzler. . . . A trademark Cornwell mystery: terse and tangled, messy and body-fluidy, and altogether satisfying.” -- Kirkus Reviews on Depraved Heart

“Dark and cleverly plotted.” -- Booklist on Depraved Heart

“Scarpetta is one of the most believable characters in crime fiction.” -- Vancouver Sun

“Forget the pretenders. Cornwell reigns.” -- Mirror (London)

“Cornwell’s books run on high octane fuel, a cocktail of adrenalin and fear” -- The Times (London) --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
