Medical examiner Kay Scarpetta suspects the worst: a deliberate campaign by a brilliant serial killer whose signature offers precious few clues. With an unerring eye, she calls on the latest advances in forensic research to unmask the madman. But this investigation will test Kay like no other, because it's being sabotaged from within - and someone wants her dead.… (més)

TW: racism, misogyny, homophobia
Uggghhhh the BOREDOM this book inspired. It's also super outdated and entire chapters are dedicated to computer bullshit that was probably cutting edge but is now so common. I read it all the way through because I wanted to know how it ended, and uhh, wow, the author sure must have improved a lot over time to have such a career. Kay Scarpetta is horrendously annoying, grating, and has horrid judgment around children. Rather than give a sobbing ten-year-old a big hug and a mug of cocoa while talking the girl through her fears, she gives her a glass of wine to shut her up because she just wants to go to bed. This ten-year-old is her niece come for her yearly visit, and Kay leaves her alone constantly. She has an on-call babysitter for this purpose. Imagine, going to visit your aunt out-of-state and having to be babysat the whole time instead! Not a vacation. Why was the ten-year-old even in the book? There's a bizarre Dead Herring (thanks to Das_sporking for the term) dedicated to her, to Kay's own niece, because she's unusually smart. She's more like a five-year-old in emotions, conclusions she draws, and speech patterns. Yet, she spouts off these amazing computer terms and is some kind of hacker. BULL AND FUCKING SHIT. I say that as someone who read at a college sophomore level by the age of nine years old! I did not talk like that or process the world so simply! Neither did my classmates, who were at normal intelligence! Cornwell cannot write children, and it's irksome.

Kay brags about how white she is and oooh she's a sexxxxhaayyyy Italian whooo coooksss amaaazing pasta and ugh, shut up. You're working those shifts, you should be dead on your feet and shoving things into a microwave. I watched a documentary about someone who worked a similar job and where is the dark humor about food comparisons to body parts and fluids? It's common in crime scene cleanup, I learned recently, too. We get it, you have blond hair, blue eyes and are petite, and your ancestors come from the border of a Scandinavian country. Blahblah shut up. The misogyny she faces is so heavy-handed and unrealistic. I absolutely hate to ask it this way, but if she's so sexxxxhayyy as she describes herself,. why aren't more men making creepy jokes and remarks to her specially about that? So far it's "eww, women are icky" repeated ad nasuem. It was repetitive and grating. In "The Killer Wore Leather" by Laura Antoniou, the misogyny and homophobia faced by Detective Rebecca Feldblum is folded in much more naturally, is believable, and comes about more organically from a writing perspective.

Over a hundred pages needed to be cut from this: the yammering on about tech in particular, and -oh-; the feel -sorry- for me was -aggravating-. I would have felt bad for her if she'd just shut up! She barely listened to other people, had a huge superiority complex--ah, she was probably a clinical narcissist. Betcha any kids she had, grew up to post on real-life Reddit group RaisedByNarcissists. It's a support group for grown children of adults a lot, lot like her. She wangsts about a 911 call being cut short. How has she not burned out? She's a fucking death worker! The suffering is over, stupid! You have a job to do. You picked this. Seventy-three pages from the end of the book, the killer is suggested, explored, and caught. It makes no sense, isn't foreshadowed in the slightest, and comes out of nowhere. His sweat smells like maple syrup, which is a real disease, except the smell is in the urine. So, by what the author wrote, the killer by rights should have pissed on the floor.
Skip this and watch a crime show instead, or read Laura Antoniou's book "The Killer Wore Leather." ( )

This author and series has been recommended several times to me by others. I bought the first two for my teen daughter and she started reading them and told me I would like them. It is definitely dated by the technology "I have my own PC at my desk..." that seems like a million years ago, but tech has just changed that much. The story line was good and moved along quickly enough. I liked that the answer wasn't obvious and in fact even the professionals guessed the killer was amongst them based on behaviors. This is interesting to me; they are truly puzzling over the case and no one is left out of the pool of suspects. I like the main character, Dr. Scarpetta, a lot. She seems really human in that she worries, gets scared and can be irrational. I didn't sleep with the windows open for many nights, even when I wanted to, because of this story. I also had disturbing dreams. I don't know if I'll read more; we'll see. ( )

"Fataal weekend opent sterk met een nieuwe moord van de seriemoordenaar, maar gaandeweg doorheen het boek wordt er nogal wat gestrooid met vaktermen waardoor je als lezer het spoor soms bijster raakt."

I used to listen to Cornwell's books in the '90s when I commuted to graduate school. Listening was a better experience than reading this one with my eyes. That may be because of the passage of time. Ok thriller with only moments of thrill. ( )
