Scarpetta by Patricia Cornwell
Scarpetta: Book summary and reviews of Scarpetta by Patricia Cornwell
Leaving behind her private forensic pathology practice in Charleston, South Carolina, Kay Scarpetta accepts an assignment in New York City, where the NYPD has asked her to examine an injured man on Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric prison ward. The handcuffed and chained patient, Oscar Bane, has specifically asked for her, and when she literally has her gloved hands on him, he begins to talk - and the story he has to tell turns out to be one of the most bizarre she has ever heard.
"With a plot full of holes and frustrating red herrings, this entry falls short of the high standard set by earlier volumes in this iconic series." - Publishers Weekly.
