Chaos: A Scarpetta Novel | Patricia Cornwell
With her world-renowned, bestselling thriller series Patricia Cornwell has created a character so real, so compelling, so driven that readers have to remind themselves that Scarpetta is just a product of an authors imagination (USA Today). In her latest novel in the bestselling series featuring chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta, Patricia Cornwell will captivate readers with the shocking twists, high-wire tension and cutting-edge forensic detail that she is famous for, proving yet again why shes the worlds #1 bestselling crime writer.

Update : Had to bail...having spent a bit of time with this author at dinner when her first books came out.
I have followed this career of this intelligent, warm heated, charming woman ever since. But this work..she could have phoned it in. She was distracted about something else is all I can say.

Oh Scarpetta. What is happening to you? Your writer is just dialing it in and not taking you to your full potential. Collecting a paycheck. There's hidden depths that need to be explored and it's just not happening. I won't give up on you; not yet.

Dragon Patricia Cornwell used to be my go to author, I read every novel with Kay, Marino and the gang. It's sad but I think she's cranking them out for the money 💰😞 3y
TrishB I admire you not giving up - I vowed no more after the last one. Kay is gone 😔 3y
Shemac77 I totally agree. I just can't seem to let her go. The first books were just so wonderful, I keep hoping she comes back to that; finds the joy again. It feels like it's all about collecting a paycheck. The storyline in this one was weak. @TrishB @Dragon 3y
Meganbub I vowed to give up after the last one. Sad to see there hasn't been any improvement. 3y

So after struggling through this alllllll the way up until there were only 80 pages left, I had a little accident. Emailed the director of the owning library tonight to explain that it would be coming back in the bins a disaster and this is just a hint of our conversation.. 🤣 At any rate, Im not finishing the book. 😡 Didn't want to anyway haha 😅

Reviewsbylola Thank god it was a book you weren't keen on finishing! 3y

I don't know why I keep reading this series. The books aren't what they used to be. This one seemed like it spent so much time waiting (literally) for something to happen. And then when things started to happen it was the end and everything seemed rushed!

bookwrm526 I got so angry when she killed one of the characters that I stopped reading and sold all my copies to the used bookstore - then I found out she didn't really kill the character but I decided I was still done lol 3y

Didn't want to wait any longer for the ebook so I just checked out the hard copy during my library shift today. I've been listening to the audiobook during my commute. I like Susan Erickson's style. So far the story is good but I'm really hoping the Carrie storyline ends soon

I still enjoy reading this series. Her characters aren't very likable anymore and there aren't many cases. I've heard Kay is heading back to Virginia maybe her old style will resurface.

TrishB I'm not enjoying them anymore 😞 is this better than the last couple? 3y
Booknerd2 It's dark and tense. Can't say better necessarily. There is a reveal at the end that explains Carrie obsession with them all. 3y

I work retail and during the holiday season only have one day off a week. Today I finally have a day off with no plans to leave my place. What a better way to spend it then with a new Scarpetta adventure.

I love Kay Scarpetta mysteries and this one did not disappoint. Alas, I read this one before realizing that I had skipped one. But, it's all good because now I have another Kay Scarpetta book to read. You will find a familiar psychopath in the pages of both books and I'm finding that reading them out of order is OK in this instance. There is a stinging twist at the end of Chaos, as there usually is in these books.

Cornwell always delivers cutting edge forensic science in her Scarpetta thrillers, and CHAOS is no different. The science is practically Crichton-esque. // I am now home reading in my recliner in my bedroom's reading nook waiting for grocery delivery.

"There's really only one rule in life, he preached. To do what's right." Scarpetta is highly compassionate to the victims she examines; and though she maintains strict personal privacy she loves deeply those she lets into her inner circle. // Still reading this ms, on the way home from Cape May via Garden State Parkway. ❤️ my man who always happily drives us.

Halfway through and Scarpetta still hasn't been able to examine and bag the body. I'm now reading on the back porch at our friends' house in Cape May, with Rufus the standard poodle.

"If we can't recognize evil, then we can't say for sure it's not in our midst." I can't speak for Kay Scarpetta's Cambridge, MA, but I know for sure there is no evil here at Cape May Point, NJ right now. Just sun, sand, sea, and sky.

Scarpetta is feeling bleak -- to me, "not everybody" implies most people still do. What a burden she carries.

Reading the manuscript of the new Scarpetta novel on my 2.5 hour train ride to the Jersey Shore today. We're revealing the jacket on Monday, and our buzz campaign will be off and running. (CHAOS by Patricia Cornwell is on sale November 15, 2016.)
