Slow & boring, not page turner like early Scarpetta's, which finished in 1 to 2 sittings. This had to work to finish. Port Mortuary is neither a mystery nor thriller, but more study of screwed up personalities ---- that maybe a Freudian would enjoy. Not Me!!!
Gets worse and worse
I don't know why I keep reading corn wells books. They get worse and worse. The early scarpetta books were great but the last four or five are slow, boring and less believable.
Plodding and difficult
I remember a time that I pre-ordered all of the Scarpetta books. Now I find them difficult to read. Kay feels sorry for herself and betrayed by everyone. The prose is disjointed and hard to follow. Wait for this one to get to the library because it isn't worth the money.
