As previously mentioned this is the first book I have read by the author and it certainly won’t be the last. This was the first in the Scarpetta series,which is now huge and one can certainly tell it’s from the early 90s. The computer systems described are old and the youth of DNA use is also evident.
The book revolves around a strangler who is killing women believes live on their own, there is also a commissioner who is trying to sabotage Dr Kay Scarpetta’s career. She also has some concerns regarding Bill Boltz the colleague she is seeing personally.
This book is so clever throughout the majority of it the reader can just not see the connection and I felt the frustration of the detectives. Once I finished this book I actually felt a bit of a chill and could not stop thinking about it.
I think this book will stick with me for a while and I can’t wait to read another one.
Would I recommend it? Yes
This book is basically Mammy Walsh’s side of the story if you have read anything by Marian Keyes before, you will be aware of the Walsh girls. Each books follows one of the sister’s escapades, and although a series they also work very well as stand alone books. Mammy Walsh goes through all of the family sayings and some of the things that have happened to them without going into enough detail that it would ruin the other books if you read this first. This is e-book only.
This is by far one of the funniest books I have ever read. From her love for one direction and Michael Buble to her discussing what they now do on the ‘facebooks’, this is hilarious. I have been waiting for Marian’s new book for a couple of years and honestly forgot what a funny writer she was. The description of G-Strings made me laugh so loud on the train people were looking at me .
For £1.99 this was also a great bargain from a great author.
