Postmortem (Kay Scarpetta, #1) This is a really terrific book I think people forget how things started when they talk about current books by Patricia Cornwell Back in the beginning, she was doing something no other woman was doing, and she did it really well So well that she inspired folks like m Patri u mi je otkrila krajem 90 ih moja tetka koja ivi u Americi i koja je njen vatreni obo avalac Dosta italaca je voli ali se to nikad ne bi reklo po prodaji njenih romana teta, moglo bi to i bolje Patricia Cornwell s Postmortem was my first foray into the forensic science crime novel While I am fully capable of reading detailed descriptions of gore and autopsies without getting sick, I was a tad worried that it would get too technical where I d lose some of the understanding of the medical aspects While it happens on occasion, the editors and author have done a great job at finding the perfect level of language to keep the words flowing properly most of the Mysteries have long been recreational reading for me About every fourth or fifth book, I read is a mystery sandwiched in between literary best sellers and stellar non fiction I ve been meaning to get around to Patricia Cornwall and had picked up a few of her books at yard sales, but I was waiting until I found the first book in her Kay Scarpetta series before I dove in Postmortem won numerous awards when it came out

impressed As a fan of Kathy Reichs, I felt that Cornwall was not as good but then I realized that Reichs first book came out 10 years after Cornwall s first Scarpetta book Put in that historical perspective, I understood that she was the antecedent who set the stage for writers like Reichs There are other historical aspects of this book that make it fun For instance there are no cell phones AND the use of the Kay Scarpetta books, like Alex Cross books and anything V.C Andrews wrote, are books I grew up seeing around the house but mostly stayed away from They were are names I associate with story over prose fiction, the type of popular books that are easily consumable but lack any writing prowess whatsoever In the case of Patricia Cornwell, I was admittedly wrong I have no problems with her writing, and her story is sound No complaints there.Mom always had Cornwell paperbacks strewn about the hou Kay Scarpetta books, like Alex Cross books and anything V.C Andrews wrote, are

her man Or woman Or robot Even when books are set in current times, or in the past few years, it s great BUT Postmortem lies in the bottom of awkward valley for me at the moment I read over and over and over about how maybe someone should change their words only password on a networked computer and how secure the net If you can handle scary, and can look past gory and profane, Patricia Cornwell s novels are AMAZING Aside from good old J.K and Harper Lee, Cornwell is my favorite author I m convinced that all the CS Under Cover Of Night In Richmond, Virginia, A Human Monster Strikes, Leaving A
