Rated 5 out of 5 by from The bone bed Great read. Always enjoy the suspense. Always well written story. Looking forward to next publication.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deceiving Title This was my first Patricia Cornwall novel and first Kay Scarpetta story so I won't be too negative because I can't compare it to any other Scarpetta story by Cornwall. However, the title and back cover gave me the impression the story would revolve around solving a case in Alberta's dino beds. It was not and for that reason I'm disappointed and give 4/5 stars. I was looking forward to dinosaurs being mingled in. Dinosaurs weren't even mentioned! Overall, it was still a good story and fairly intriguing throughout.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Bone Bed I'm noticing that Patricia's books are beginning to follow a pattern concerning her characters. For one they never seem to be happy and another someone is always out to get one of them. This book follows that path.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Bone Bed It just absolutely amazes me all the different stories and ways of murder that Patricia Cornwell always conjures up. Another excellent addition to the Scarpetta series. There is no other crime writer today as compelling as Patricia Cornwell.

About the Author

Patricia Cornwell was born in Miami, Florida on June 9, 1956. When she was nine years old, her mother tried to give her and her two brothers to evangelist Billy Graham and his wife to care for. For a while the children lived with missionaries since their mother was unable to care for them. After graduating from Davidson College in 1979, she worked for The Charlotte Observer eventually covering the police beat and winning an investigative reporting award from the North Carolina Press Association for a series of articles on prostitution and crime in downtown Charlotte. Her award-winning biography of Ruth Bell Graham, the wife of Billy Graham, A Time for Remembering, was published in 1983. From 1984 to 1990, she worked as a technical writer and a computer analyst at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond, Virginia. While working for the medical examiner, she began to write novels. Although the award-winning novel Postmortem was initially rejected by seven different publishers, once it was published in 1990 it became the only novel ever to win the Edgar, Creasey, Anthony, and Macavity awards as well as the French Prix du Roman d'Adventure, in one year. She is the author of the Kay Scarpetta series, the Andy Brazil series, and the Winston Garano series. She has also written two cookbooks Scarpetta's Winter Table and Food to Die For; a children's book Life's Little Fable; and non-fiction works like Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper - Case Closed.
