The Bone Bed by Patricia Cornwell

The Bone Bed I’m usually a pretty big fan or Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta novels but this wasn’t one of her best efforts. The first few chapters were full of little details, like a Tom Clancy novel, and not a lot of substance. The story just felt disjointed, talking about Canada and paleontologist’s disappearance. Then back to Boston where Scarpetta had to retrieve a body caught in a net along with a huge turtle. Scarpetta also seemed to be less sure of herself, contemplating an affair with a co-worker while she worried about an attraction a FBI agent had to her husband. Then I felt the end rushed to tie things together and be done. The good thing was if you had never read one of the Scarpetta novels before, you didn’t feel like you had missed anything from past novels that was discussed. Cornwell did a good job of keeping the reader informed about prior events.
