Mary Stuart Masterson is easily the best thing about Cornwell's latest. But all the fine performing in the world can't make an overly complex story enjoyable. Masterson ably outlines the soap opera life of former coroner Dr. Kay Scarpetta and those of her handsome lover and her lesbian niece, but it still falls flat. No amount of good delivery can disguise pointless action and a convoluted plot with multiple story lines and multiple locations that magically come together--at least they are supposed to come together. Sadly, they do not. Listeners will celebrate the day that Cornwell rediscovers the magic that used to make Kay Scarpetta mysteries a joy to hear.

Descripción Little, Brown Book Group. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Predator (New edition), Patricia Cornwell, Florida is full of human predators, and they all give Dr Kay Scarpetta the opportunity and the means to do what she does best - persuading the dead to speak to her. And in Boston, Benton Wesley is working on a secret case involving convicted killers. It is a project which gives Scarpetta deep disquiet, as does the behaviour of her niece, Lucy, who is spending too much time in cheap bars looking for casual pick-ups. The Academy is called when a woman's body is found in Boston. She has been tortured, sexually abused, her body tattooed with handprints. The same sort of handprints Lucy had seen on the flesh of her latest pick-up. Meanwhile, Scarpetta and Marino are investigating the disappearance of a family in Florida, called in by a concerned neighbour, but as they search and find the tell-tale signs of abduction rather than disappearance, they also discover that someone had assumed the identity of the caller, and she is now dead. They've been set up, and it becomes clear that someone is tracking their every move. Nº de ref. de la librería B9780751534047
