    English Postmortem Italiano It was raining in Richmond on Friday, June 6

    The first case of Kay Scarpetta, the coroner who made the fortune of the American writer Patricia Cornwell, starts in the rain The population of Richmond is upset about the presence of a serial killer who first rapes his victims, and then he strangles them in their bedrooms The coroner Scarpetta, who examined the bodies of the killed women, awaits powerless the next victim.

    A few weeks ago I picked from my bookshelf an old copy of this novel, that I read in 2000 I had the reading date on the inside cover The cover is bright yellow, I remember liking it Yes, let s read it again Straightforward narrative, 320 pages of honest and concrete thriller, with a nice suspense There are no striking twists and turns, but in my opinion the strength of this novel from 1990 is keeping a grip on reality, without flights of fancy that are scarcely digestible if carried out too far to improbable situations Sometimes the imaginative final revelations typical of modern thrillers badly astonish me After all degustibus non est disputandum.

    In any case, Patricia Cornwell has the virtue of starting the forensic medicine genre Great opening narrative.

    In introducing the reader to Dr Kay Scarpetta, Cornwell does a masterful job of developing both the character and a back story, while also forging ahead with a novel based mystery While the genre is supersaturated with these types of stories nowadays, Cornwell writes in such a way as to rise above the rest putting aside that the novel came out before the aforementioned overkill When a string of women are left strangled and murdered, Dr Scarpett must piece things together and determine whether this is a serial killer or simply horrific coincidences The latest victim s death points fingers at someone close to her, leaving Scarpetta to use her forensic knowledge to decipher who it might be Cornwell hints at numerous suspects throughout, leaving the reader to wonder whodunit from beginning to end Cornwell uses great research to bring the book to life as well, from detailed forensics, poli...

    Patricia Cornwell s Postmortem was my first foray into the forensic science crime novel While I am fully capable of reading detailed descriptions of gore and autopsies without getting sick, I was a tad worried that it would get too technical where I d lose some of the understanding of the medical aspects While it happens on occasion, the editors and author have done a great job at finding the perfect level of language to keep the words flowing properly most of the time.Scarpetta is a true hero someone to admire, someone to fear She will always solve the case even in the most intricate complex ones out there The style is strong, the descriptions and setting vivid You feel like you are in the story along side the protagonist About Me For those new to me or my reviews here s the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you ll also find TV Film reviews, the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I ve visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who what when where and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by Note All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other site...

    Mysteries have long been recreational reading for me About every fourth or fifth book, I read is a mystery sandwiched in between literary best sellers and stellar non fiction I ve been meaning to get around to Patricia Cornwall and had picked up a few of her books at yard sales, but I was waiting until I found the first book in her Kay Scarpetta series before I dove in Postmortem won numerous awards when it came out in 1990 including the Edgar and the Anthony awards.For the first 100 or so pages, I was not overly impressed As a fan of Kathy Reichs, I felt that Cornwall was not as good but then I realized that Reichs first book came out 10 years after Cornwall s first Scarpetta book Put in that historical perspective, I understood that she was the antecedent who set the stage for wri...

    A Post Mortem Report on PostmortemManagement Performance Careful project management led to successful achievement of outcome objectives Tension was raised stakes were high stakeholders and key informants displayed a personal engagement with project that enhanced performance.Communication Efficient and professional dry and often uninteresting Occasional well turned and resonant phrases made welcome albeit brief appearances.Group Dynamics Principal Investigator was expertly characterized Supporting characters, less so Child character annoying cop character confusingly developed Villainous functionaries not provided with appropriate villainous attributes other than serving as assessors of PI s activities Assessor s note Such activities are not actually villainous despite the annoyance and melodrama displayed by PI upon assessment as they are central to an Assessor s scope of work, for real.Tools Forensic tools well used Forensic details did not overwhelm project.Training Needs Identified Project successfully outlined training needs for crime writers and humanity, e.g train yourself to not drool over the gory details and don t embrace a pornography of violence because that s not a good look for crime writers and humans Well done, project leader Key Problem Areas Poorly developed motivation for killer Killer found almost by accident, which caused snickers and...

    I loved the 1990s There was great television, Pogs, scrunchies, and the Pittsburgh Penguins were amazing at hockey obviously Jaromir Jagr s mullet contributed a significant amount to this last part And although I totally loved playing Seventh Guest, Oregon Trail, Carmen Sandiego, and the like on our old Macs, I m happy with the advancements in technology Okay, moving on, I also love crime novels When they are set in ye oldey times, I get caught up in the story, seeing how Sherlock could deduce his way to victory Or when they are set in the future, I like seeing Eve Dallas use new fangled technology to find her man Or woman Or robot Even when books are set in current times, or in the past few years, it s great BUT Postmortem lies in the bottom of awkward valley for me at the moment I read over and over and over about how maybe someone should change their words only password on a networked computer and how secure the network was Every time I read about dialing in from home to a network that was left in answer mode, I could hear the dial up noise in my headand how grating is that Side note do kids today even know what a dial up noise is I feel old I m sure, nay, positive that I will enjoy the Scarpetta books further down the line as technology catches up but I was frustrated throughout this novel There was many a dramatic eye roll and Oh, brother muttered The printer paper still had those holey side parts and DNA evidence was new They spend at least ha...

    Kay Scarpetta books, like Alex Cross books and anything V.C Andrews wrote, are books I grew up seeing around the house but mostly stayed away from They were are names I associate with story over prose fiction, the type of popular books that are easily consumable but lack any writing prowess whatsoever In the case of Patricia Cornwell, I was admittedly wrong I have no problems with her writing, and her story is sound No complaints there.Mom always had Cornwell paperbacks strewn about the house But, nowadays, she can t remember a single storyline or why she even enjoyed the series My mother has a tremendous memory, especially for books she s read the woman can tell me the entire Terry Brooks s Shannara storyline in succinct detail, it s one of the reasons I ve never read that series , but she can t wrap her head around why she used to love these books as much as she did And I kinda understand that While I did like the writing and the story, there s nothing remarkable here Just an engaging read that is likely to maintain your interest But will I remember it in a week a month a year Highly unlikely Postmortem is an easily accessible piece of forensic thriller fiction Think CSI or any of the lab moments ...
