Postmortem (novel) – Wikipedia

I really did enjoy listening to this book so much that I couldn’t wait to get back in the car and finish it but once it was over I kept thinking did I really like it that much or was I just ready for it to be over. I am torn on this one.

I just can’t make up mind on this one which is why I gave it 3 stars. I found the bad guy very amazing up until the end and then I found him to be very ppst. I did love the science well my idea of science on both sides — the computer side and the medical side. I also found her niece very annoying and felt they were tiptoeing around her about everything so she wouldn’t get upset.

The narrator did a good job on the book and the characters and I have to admit I have heard other books in this series but I felt the author kept the characteristics of the characters that I enjoyed in some of the later books. They sounded like the characters I already knew except the character of Benton which I found this version different than all the other versions I have listened to. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Social descarggar were descsrgar in when Patricia Cornwell wrote her first Kay Scarpetta mystery, “Postmortem.


These descriptions took up a lot of space and time in the novel, and today many readers find it tiring, especially when nearly every character lights up.

This is not a criticism descaragr “Postmortem” ;ost it was used by many writers of the time. There are other distractions in the story, however, such as the ever popular fixing and drinking cups of steaming coffee, the changing weather patterns predicting or underlining the action, and the inevitable sidekick that is experienced but prejudiced and annoying.

All of this said, Cornwell has developed a sophisticated, strong and educated character in Kay Scarpetta. As the newly appointed chief medical officer of Virginia, her autopsies are meticulous and she is relentless in finding the cause of death. Her appointed partner in the Richmond police force is detective Marino, who knows the beat but expresses stereotypical opinions of different types of people.

He and Scarpetta annoy one another immediately. Annoying the reader cornwekl Marino’s misuse of the most common verb in English. He always uses “was” whether the subject is singular or plural. It makes him look stupid which he is not, and he proves to be quite valuable to Scarpetta in the end.

The mystery is well detailed and informative as Cornwell has experience both in the Virginia medical examiner’s office and as a volunteer police officer. The plot is exciting, but slowed by lengthy red herrings, and the end is out of the blue. This is my second time around with Caldwell’s Kay Scarpetta series. The first time was about 15 or 16 years ago on my own. Recently we started a local book club and, as the next hostess, I decided to introduce those not familiar with them, to the first two books in the series.

I chose these so they could be introduced properly to the characters, careers, and relationships. Some book club members have read some of the series before, and they are telling me they are enjoying them all over again. If you like murder mysteries coupled with forensic science, police and Medical Examiner’s investigations, and some intense situations, you will enjoy this series and enjoy watching the relationships change and grow through the years.

This is a descqrgar crime story. The characters are well presented. However, some things seem unusual. Some of the characters are in positions that are at the Commonwealth State level: Also, the Commonwealth Chief Medical Examiner gets involved with detective work at the city level and that seem odd.


Plus the only police investigator is a mere city detective sergeant who works alone without a partner or task force to solve five murders by a serial killer. I know that the author has poetic license and it is a book of fiction but it be mor realistic.

I just read this book although it was written almost two decades ago. The author’s very first novel. Now I know why she has been so successful – a lot of work and effort obviously went into writing a very good book. It is important dwscargar remember the timeframe when novels are written – don’t read everything with your present-day biases i. I found it interesting that she did not make the heroes or villains wholly good or pateicia.

The characters were more complex that I expected. One person found decsargar helpful. I have flip-flopped from thinking that her writing is tedious to periods where I can’t wait to see what dsecargar next. Maybe she just needs a better editor. But the fact is that I keep coming back. She knows how to tell a story and she is making the most out of her innovative slant on crime novels by bringing the reader into the story from the point of view of a Chief Medical Examiner.

A good franchise to have.

This first of the Kay Scarpetta series has a freshness that is missing in some of her later books. It was like discovering a new writer, even cornwelll this book was released in The reader meets characters that recur in the later books.

It’s almost like watching a television cornewll with a set cast of characters. Yeah, I came back because despite the flaws I suppose Patricia Cornwell has my number.
