    Book Review 3 of 5 stars to From Potter's Field the sixth in the Kay Scarpetta thriller series published in 1994 by Patricia Cornwell After five books you begin expecting and from a series wanting it to up its game thrown mystery and character depth and you get that in this book; however you also get a bit of a different perspective this time A few things about this one1 It picks up from a previous book with the same killer who still hadn't been caught It'd be helpful to read the previous one so you are fully up to speed2 Potter's Field is a real place It's where all the bodies of unknown identity have been buried in NYC3 Involves a murder in Central Park Hits a little too close to home given what happened in CP years ago4 The ending is just bang killing spree over and let's fly back home5 The killer is directly after Scarpetta finding victims beforehand to get Scarpetta to find him6 You learn a lot about the underground And a killer's lair7 Scarpetta never learns She won't partner with someone the way she should8 This was probably the take off point in the series where the author became uite famous She had recognition before this book but the series was widely known when this one was releasedThat said it's a solid read but a bit focused than previous books When you have some history from earlier reads you feel connected But in the end it was or less just a good thriller book for me Still enjoy the series and this was the most relate able to me given the location 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 whowhatwhenwhere 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 sites and belong to them Many thanks to their original creatorspolldaddy poll9729544 polldaddy poll9719251

    Boy This booked pissed me offNormally I would give this book a better review but no This book has all the angst and mystery that you expect from a Patricia Cornwell novel The plot is a continuation of a storyline started in a previous novel the pursuit of Temple Gault Gault is just as dark and manipulative as in the other books and you race to the climax of the book to see if he will get away to torment Kay Scarpetta in the next novel or will this chapter finally reach its conclusionAfter 350 pages of taut writing and involving narrative the whole book resolves in two paragraphs And they aren't even long paragraphs After the investment in time that I spent with the characters I had hoped for something a lot Maybe there will be resolution in the next book but this one just left me feeling cheated

    SPOILERS 303 Like The Body Farm this book's title is false advertising An even smaller portion of the book was dedicated to what's named in the title the first victim is originally a Jane Doe and is buried in Potter's Field her real identity is later discovered and she's moved to a family plot Thinking about the plot of the book I can't think of an appropriate title off the top of my head so maybe Cornwell had a similar mental block and at the last minute just pulled the title from an interesting though barely mentioned location that she had used in the book not even considering how little it had to do with the story Or maybe the publisher thought the idea of a book with a storyline that featured Potter's Field and the body farm previously would make it a bestseller and didn't consider how it fit with the plot Either way I think it backfired because it just leaves me scratching my head as to what Potter's Field really has to do with anythingI do think Cornwell's endings tend to be a bit rushed 400 pages of build up and escalating tension and then everything's over in a chapter and a one page epilogue if that it all feels a bit abrupt and like she gets to the end of her books and after all that time and effort she just wants to get the book over and done with After all the work I think the endings should be savoured maybe steal 30 50 pages from the build up and really give the end the time it deserves and add a decent epilogue where appropriate so we know how everything wrapped up properlyBecause the inappropriate title annoyed me as much with this one as it did with The Body Farm I had to deduct that same star but fortunately there were no confusions with Lucy's age versus how many years were supposed to have passed As soon as I finished this last night I picked up Cause of Death and read 100 pages of that before I could force myself to put it down and go to sleep I'll likely finish that one tonight very nearly a one sitting read as Cosmopolitan suggests

    I've read a lot of Cornwell's books The one thing that irks me the most about Scarpetta is that she doesn't let people help her when the big baddie is determined to fuck her shit up They want her to temporarily move to a safe house and even when she lets people stay over it's like pulling teeth They aren't being unreasonable because Kay this person wants to target you and they know where you live This happens in every single book

    From Potter's Field is yes another brilliant psychological thriller from Patricia Cornwell The body of a homeless woman is found propped into a sitting position in the freezing cold Kay Scarpetta chief medical examiner of Virginia is called in and immediately recognises the handiwork of Temple Brooks Gault a serial killer never caught Except this time his target is none other than herIn From Potter's Field Patricia Cornwell explores the different relationships between the characters as well as mental illness The events that occur in From Potter's Field are much of what we could be seeing on TV the next day insanely realistic She explores Temple Brooks Gault's game with Kay Scarpetta well tempting and taunting her at every moveDr Kay Scarpetta is the narrator of the series She has a great character and her flaws really showed in this book Her inner sense of justice and honed instincts are a very great asset to her Some complications from earlier books remain including her tangled love lifeOne of my other favourite characters is her niece Lucy Lucy has a very high I and is the mastermind behind the Criminal Artificial Intelligence Network commonly known simply as CAIN Her sexual orientation and young age make many doubt her ability but I really admire herPatricia Cornwell really is one of the best crime writers ever Her mysteries are ongoing explorational and very real world She allows her characters to face many hardships further strengthening the storyline and plot If you love Murder Mysteries Patricia Cornwell is for you

    Loved the reading Watching the tangled web become unwoven

    I wouldn't rate this at the top of the Scarpetta series but Cornwell is great at what she does and this is no exceptionIf you don't know the Scarpetta series and read this on it's own there are probably a few too many previous references to be comfortable as a standalone novelThat aside there is plenty of action and any novel with a wintry setting will always have my heartA high 3 stars

    An unidentified nude female sits propped against a fountain in Central Park There are no signs of struggle When Dr Kay Scarpetta and her colleagues Benton Wesley and Pete Marino arrive on the scene they instantly recognize the signature of serial killer Temple Brooks Gault Scarpetta on assignment with the FBI visits the New York City morgue on Christmas morning where she must use her forensic expertise to give a name to the nameless—a difficult task But as she sorts through conflicting forensic clues Gault claims his next victim He has infiltrated the FBI's top secret artificial intelligence system developed by Scarpetta's niece and sends taunting messages as his butchery continues moving terrifyingly closer to Scarpetta herself

    Ugh Worst series ever I gave Kay Scarpetta a heroic try dragging myself through 6 awful books waiting for things to get better but they never did At least the boring Temple Gault horrendous name by the way is over and done with I have so many gripes about this series it's hard to know where to beginFirst off isn't she the medical examiner Shouldn't she be doing corpse examining Why is she always running off somewhere to go investigate I understand the consultant forensic pathologist role for the FBI but she doesn't just give lend her knowledge about the body she has to try to be a profiler and an investigator too I don't know why the FBI has Benton or Marino when they could just keep Scarpetta full timeSecond the characters suck There is not one likeable person in this whole series NOT ONE Kay Scarpetta rages and whines all day long about everything under the sun Is snooty and moody bitches about everything and puts herself in the dumbest situations I have ever read a main character doing It is unbelievable to me that a medical examiner would have to kill so many people within their career much less in 6 years Lucy the niece Totally gets her moodiness bitchiness from her aunt Her smart ass attitude and Kay's bragging about her genius which only works for computers because in commonsense that girl is a dud also something she inherited from her aunt is tiresome And of course she must be a lesbian because her mother is an asshole eye roll Marino grumpy overweight overprotective and unattractive 'Nuff said Wesley Benton emotionless adulterer who not only cheats on his wife who is friends with Kay also but cheats on his wife with his dead best friend's loverThirdly is that a word the stories all get so boring and long winded There's so much talking about what they're going to do that when it finally happens it takes about 5 paragraphs and the whole thing is over The books end so abruptly and begin the same way I always have to double check that I didn't miss a book in the seriesAll in all I am done with this series for awhile if not forever I would much rather read Kathy Reichs At least some of her characters are decent human beings

    From Potter's Field by Patricia Cornwell is the 6th book in the Kay Scarpetta series a series that is increasingly frustrating for me as a reader There are some things that Cornwell does really well and some things she does poorly The scene were an out of control and panicked Scarpetta tries to regain control and calm by making dinner for everyone despite not having groceries That's a wonderful scene emotional and true and very in character The increasingly dark and gross portrayal of Marino as the Designated Male Chauvinist Pig as opposed to rough around the edges working class good guy Is getting grating especially as he's a dick to EVERYONE and Scarpetta limply defends him Dialogue of minor characters is bright and lively and full of personality while Scarpetta's and Wesley's dialogue is stiff stilted overly formal eschewing contractions It clunks along like a living example of how not to write engaging fluid dialogueThe Scarpetta books and are fluff They're popcorn books to consume in one sitting slightly formulaic entertaining They're not books to mull over or treasure They're entertaining though And the most interesting thing about them is how they rely on actual science and technology and not future tech like most television and movie crime procedurals This book is liberally littered with conversations about computers programs modems UNIX etc but in a way that feels organic and understandable It's not computer jargon for the sake of computer jargon and it isn't presented in info dump ways I'm also enjoying the female relationships Scarpetta has especially with her lesbian niece Scarpetta's attitude towards her sexuality seems to be changing from Nice White Lady Liberal Tolerance to actual acceptance just as her character has uit smoking and cut back on drinking She's extremely over protective of her which I know many readers find irritating but I find very in character I also feel it's presented as a character flawThis book was a pretty meh book I didn't feel a lot of threat from the Big Bad Temple Gault other than Because It's In The Book ie everyone talks about how bad and evil and devious he is and acts scared of him But his actual actions while fucked up and awful aren't earth shattering evil I mean they are but there's so much worse than him wandering around the really real world However it was still entertaining and I'm about to reserve the next book from the library I do hope the series picks up a bit and I'm interested to find if the series goes back to different bad dude each book or if there'll be another long arc
