Am I the only one that found the plot way too convoluted? Taking an older murder from another state, sending the blood evidence to a lab in California and having this huge conspiracy about insider trading with a rape thrown in for no good reason that I could see. And I'm so jaded I thought the rape was [SPOILER actually a BDSM sexual encounter that was taken the wrong way (hide spoiler)].
I'm pretty sure this is my first time reading this author and I don't plan on picking up any of her other books anytime soon.
I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway. Depraved Heart was the first book I read by Patricia Cornwell. I was worried because it was the 23rd book in the Kay Scarpetta series. I could not get into the story. The book seem to be vague with a lot of dialogue and I was lost and could never seem to get what was going on. The author does bring some background information of what has happened before, but this is not a book to start the series.
Ok I've marked it as read but I've only read about 15% not even quite that. I don't know what this is but its nothing like a story. Garbled nonsense. It took me ages to work out what was actually HAPPENING in the first bit. Scarpetta walking to a thing, Marino yelling at her on the phone about a thing, or something. I'm still not clear on where she was walking TOO even though there was some rubbish about a lecture. I just don't get it. Then frankly I skipped forward a bit and still garbled there is no flow to it. I can't cope. Especially since there isnt even a case yet as far as I can see. Unless you count the lecture subject (Challenger) which seems to just be an excuse for people to be "after" Scarpetta again.
I keep getting dragged back in hopeful of some clarity from this once terrific author. I maybe should have stuck with it a bit more but frankly life is too short.
