New Monthly 5 Book Review

"Depraved Heart" by Patricia Cornwell

My first book review for November is "Depraved Heart" by Patricia Cornwell.

Not quite the latest in the Kay Scarpetta series of novels ("Chaos" has just been released in hardback) this is a much grittier novel than we have seen before. The book carries on from the events of "Flesh & Blood", picking up the action two months later.

We see Kay feeling more than a little left out where decisions surrounding her own family are concerned and struggling to stay one step ahead of the woman who tried to kill her before.

To be honest, I spent most of the novel waiting for the action to pick up a notch or two, but I couldn't stop reading the book, the underlying suspense of something that was about to happen kept me gripped the hole way through.

Fans of the Kay Scarpetta series will not be disappointed.

I give this book and 4 book review. I really liked it, i like the grittier side to the character and the darker undercurrent that was apparent in this book.
