The character of Benton, who I used to like, has become annoying with all of his, “it’s FBI stuff and I can’t say much cornnwell crap. Dec 06, Sharyn rated it liked it.

Depraved Heart (Scarpetta, #23) by Patricia Cornwell

Wikipedia Cambridge, MA Link I’m sick of Lucy and her irrational behavior. Scarpetta and her family, including her long suffering husband. The entire book was so vague and unbelievable that I had to make an effort to finish it.

Besides that issue, this book was really good! Married to a FBI profiler who keeps secrets and a super-genius niece who has no respect for authority and has not evolved as a character in 18 books and keeps secrets of her own.

I liked Lucy and how smart she was. Some weird things go on and Scarpetta i This is the first book I have read by Cornwell and the first cornqell I have read in this series.

The one other thing that Cornwell keeps doing is making her books take place in a twenty-four hour time frame. I admire Cornwell’s professionalism and have rated many of her earlier books 5 stars.

BOOK REVIEW: ‘Depraved Heart’ – Washington Times

Unfortunately very little mystery or actual detection takes place in the this book Just a lot of soliloquy from Kay and far too much cornwelll bang technology I don’t even think it goes into the night! Scarpetta is a medical examiner and while she is on a call she gets a video that Lucy her niece sent but it’s from the 90s when her niece was at the FBI academy. This seems nuts on the face of it, since Kay raised Lucy from childhood and the two women are as close as as two sardines in a tin.
