The Scarpetta Factor

I'm currently reading this and whilst I normally really enjoy Patricia Cornwell's books, I'm finding this one very "samey". I will read it to the end but it isn't gripping me. Do you think Stieg Larsson has spoiled me or is Patricia living on her laurels?

I thought this was an interesting review. I must be honest and say that I have not yet been able to read this author; odd isn't it. Just doesn't get me interested :0(

I've read alot of her books, but they are ALL the same.

Just like the Dan Brown ones, all following the exact same formula

Couldn't agree more.
Such a smug c*w Dr. Kay. Same story different book cover.
As for Dan Brown - don't get me started as laptop could explode !

Agree these books are written to a formula, getting bored with them. Anybody read the books by Simon Beckett(think it's 2 T's) I've read all 3 books, forensic science crime novels and really enjoyed them. Order most of the books we read(a lot) from the library over the internet, couldn't afford to buy them all. happy reading. foxy x

Scarpetta..

I loved her early Scarpetta books, The Body Farm etc., but I do think she has reached saturation point. The characters are not as interesting as they were in the early days, and the plots dubious. I have just finished "The Book of the Dead" and was very hard pressed to finish it. Don't think I will be buying any more of hers I'm afraid.

I haven't read this latest one, but agree with Jenifer. The early ones were good but now Dr Kay has become so predictable along with the stories

yep me too i'm afraid - loved the early ones and read 'em all avidly, but just not bothered for the last few as i found them all becoming the same and got bored.

Totally agree her books are now so predicable.
Have just read some books by Kathryn Fox that are a little different

I stopped reading her books about six years ago for this very reason. They are not bad books in themselves but just don't vary much.

Like Sandra - just don't mention Dan Brown and the word 'author' in the same sentence. He is not worthy.
