Review: The Scarpetta Factor

Posted on Updated on

The Scarpetta Factor Book Review
4 of 5 stars to The Scarpetta Factor, the 17th book in the Kay Scarpetta mystery and thriller series, written by Patricia Cornwell and published in 2009. Many readers had mixed reactions to this book when it was released, thinking Cornwell finally got back on track with the character of Dr. Kay Scarpetta; however, some felt it was still going downhill. I enjoyed the book, mostly because of the focus of the story. It took Scarpetta to Hollywood (so to speak), embroiled in a scandal and possible serial killer over a famous actress, to NYC where she helped work on the crimes and cases (and that’s where I live!), and she had an on-air radio show which kept things feeling different. The content was very sexual in this book, given the victims who died and the way in which it happened. It’s not one of the lighter books, but then again, I do like reading stuff that pushes the limit without just being silly and vulgar. It’s a fine line here, but I enjoyed it. I think it was a good installment in the series, but not the best… gives me hope the series may be back on track.

      Oh no! It’s not one to read back-to-back. You need a break in between. Maybe a year, not five or ten! LOL It’s worth finding some time, especially the first 7 or 8. And thank you!
