3 of 5 stars to Port Mortuary, the 18th book in the Kay Scarpetta thriller series, written by Patricia Cornwell and published in 2010. This was the last Scarpetta book I read, as I then took a hiatus I’ve yet to come back from. I thought this was a decent book in the series, but it had some low points and it had some high points. The series seems to go thru a bit of an identity crisis when it tries to change a little direction, and this one, I am hopeful it is back on track. I’m not sure yet tho. We’re back to first person narration again, so we hear Scarpetta’s thoughts and voice, which is good. But it’s gone super-detail oriented on technology to the point where it’s less about the mystery and more about the information dump. We also have less of the supporting characters, and when we do have them, their idiosyncrasies are on full blast — too high tho. I think we need a reboot here, with some new characters and a change of atmosphere. I’m going to pick up the next book in the series soon to see if it changes or not, then I’ll decide if I’ve given up or am still in it for the long haul
