Read full description of the books:
Unnatural Exposure, the 8th book in the "Kay Scarpetta" thriller series, published in 1997, by Patricia Cornwell, get 3 of 5 stars. By this time, fans of the series know Kay Scarpetta really well, and you either love her or get annoyed by her but love the mysteries. I generally like her as a character, but she did push a few buttons in this installment. Now that shes become fairly famous in her field, she's a little holier-than-thou... probably rightfully so, but still, a little goes a long way. This one features more of her niece Lucy and a rival ME who seems out to get her. The chase revolves around a serial killer with a body count both in Virginia and in Ireland. Is is the same person? A copy-cat? An accident? When it turns out there is potential of a lethal virus being released, Scarpetta goes into over-drive and pushes everyone further and further. It also seems someone's out to take her down, as well as anyone she's close to. I liked the medical aspect of this book and the foray into virtual reality, but I like reading thriller books for the mystery, not the ultra technical aspects. They've always been technical, slightly ahead of their time... but this one is a bit heavy-handed. A good read, but fell middle of the pack for 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 https://thisismytruthnow.com, 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.
