Blow Fly by Patricia Cornwell

February 4, 2010 at 3:29 PM (Patricia Cornwell's) (, , , )


Fearing that she is about to be fired by the governor, hounded in the media and in the courtroom, Kay Scarpetta leaves Virginia for what she believes will turn out to be the warmth and solace of the Florida sun.

However, Scarpetta is soon deep into a case that has left colleagues in Louisiana profoundly disturbed. A woman is found dead in a seedy hotel, dressed to go out, keys in her hand. Her history of blackouts, and her violent blackouts while under their spell, offer more questions than clues about their cause of her death.

Then Scarpetta receives news that chills her to the core: from his cell on death row, Jean-Baptose Chandonne – the vicious and unrepentant Wolfman, who pursued her to her very doorstep – demands to see her. Only to Scarpetta will he tell the secrets he knows the authorities desire. After all the death and destruction, what sort of endgame could this violent psychopath have in mind?


Well, this is my first post here on WordPress. I have another blog elsewhere but posting my book reviews here seems more appropriate than there. Right, so my first book is Blow Fly by Patricia Cornwell.

The plot was pretty good but in my opinion, the book ended with a lack of action. It was an awesome ending though!=D I really envy people like Kay Scarpetta (main heroine), powerful, professional and very-knowledgeable women. Not surprisingly, I didn’t really understand many of their forensic terms in there and sometimes just skipped in favor of continuing with the story. All things said, I would definitely go for Patricia Cornwell’s books in the future, no doubt.

Some of my friends weren’t quite taken to the cover though. *Laughs*
