Review

“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

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

“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

“[An] absorbing thriller.” -- Blackfive.net on Chaos

Praise for 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

“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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
