Now add to this mess, the murder of the judge's sister, add in a threat to the POTUS, another murder, and really strange clues to the murders. Ho boy, this was a fast-paced, twisty-turny read!

Fox 2000 bought the rights to Kay Scarpetta. Working with producer Liz Friedman, Marvel’s Jessica Jones and fellow Marvel EP and Twilight Saga scribe Melissa Rosenberg to develop the film and find Scarpetta a home on the big screen. At this point we are 73% through the book at this point and it has not even been 24 hours since the book began. Way too much time spent on the scientific research, which overwhelms and almost drowns out the story at time. By 830PM, 28.5 hours since Kay exited the courtroom, everything is all wrapped up in a tidy bow and the killer is dead. WARNING - **SPOILERS AHEAD** - you will want to have read the book or your reading experience may be negatively influenced.

New Sports Biographies and Autobiographies: Gift a Book for the Sports Fan In Your Life this Christmas I enjoyed reading this book and made a promise to read more of the previous novels in this series. I would rate it at 3.5 stars but some of that is probably due to not being fully up to speed with the series. A tasty, if not always tasteful, tale of supernatural mayhem that fans of King and Crichton alike will enjoy.The story starts out with Kay testifying in Old Town Alexandria regarding the alleged murder of a young woman by her husband. The judge is Kay's former roommate. The rulings the Judge makes during Kay's testimony would never happen, nor would the outrageous objections made by the prosecutor. The unrealistic story gets worse from here as people start getting killed, including the Judge's sister who is staying at the Judge's residence, with a microwave gun. There appears to be no connection to the killings, and there really isn't but for the author's unbelievable stretch at the end to make sure there is a connection. Maybe it's because it's a timely topic with more questions than answers that's intrigued me for at least a couple of years now. Maybe it's because forensic pathologist Dr. Kay Scarpetta doesn't seem quite as paranoid as usual (even though in this case, her suspicions may be rooted in fact). Whatever the reason, this, the 26th book in the popular series, is another one I really didn't want to put down. Cornwell is also good at reflecting readers' emotions around the hard career of dealing with dead bodies. The first few chapters were hard going due to the obnoxious prosecutor. You know that they have to try their utmost but he took the phrase "adversarial legal system" extremely literally. The overarching plot was good & I particularly liked how the different crime scenes were eventually tied together. All the main characters of the core group were involved: Scarpetta, Benton, Marino, & Lucy, & there were a few new ones too. The reason that I share this outline is because it has become a repeated pattern for each of the Kay Scarpetta novels. It’s predictable and over-used by Cornwell. It also contributes to some major problems.
