I've never been a big fan of her harsh unpleasant world filled with unusually disturbed killers but this book isn't even well written I can't resist uotingLucy does her best not to show what she feels Anger embarrassment picked on and hurt Should that not be Angry embarrassedI worry about reporters calling him and he blurts out to them what he did to me Just huh??? I know what she is trying to say which is that the man can't keep a secret but there are surely ways of expressing it clearlyIt's a masculine space lacking warmth or creativity and at least four thousand suare feet I estimate Lacking at least four thousand suare feet? How could she possibly know that? In fact she means that the space itself IS four thousand suare feet Again clarity is all That and not stopping her readers in their tracks to try to figure out what she meansWhere was her editor? Did they just run the manuscript through spell check and call it a day?I loathe Cornwell's mean little characters always picking on each other and keeping secrets to their own detriment but I have not previously had a problem with her writing However this book annoys me on so many levels that the terrible writing although it remains in the forefront has some stiff competition For instance if you are going to have your heroine rise from her sick bed flu three days and FEED HER DOG before she goes to a crime scene give her the intelligence to pick up a slice of bread a piece of fruit ANYTHING for herself Don't make me listen to her keen about her hunger pangs and low blood sugar for fully half of the novelStay away

Nd Benton Wesley is convinced that certain people in the government including his boss don’t want the killer caught  In  Dust Scarpetta and her colleagues are up against a force far sinister than a sexual predator who fits the criminal classification of a spectacle killer The murder of Gail Shipton soon leads deep into the dark world of designer drugs drone technology organized crime and shocking corruption at the highest levels With unparalleled high tension suspense and the latest in forensic technology Patricia Cornwell once again proves her exceptional ability to surprise and to thri Sigh I really want to like the Kay Scarpetta series again I had a really hard time getting into this one but I kept finding myself drifting off realizing I had read several pages and had no idea what I read 512 pages that takes place over 24 hours 512 pages of rambling on about nothing The characters are flat At least she stopped writing Marino as a cop turned bad biker There is no chemistry between Kay Marino or Benton And no character development of any other characters I often times had no idea who was who and how they were connected or why I should care Very poor story development No explanation of why the bad guy has a grudge against KayThen Cornwell tosses in a backstory that Kay was called to the Sandy Hook shootingand she keeps mentioning it but never gets into it It's just so out of place I still think Cornwell stopped actually writing this series years ago and has someone else writing

Dust Author Patricia CornweMassachusetts Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta has just returned from working one of the worst mass murders in US history when she’s awakened at an early hour by Detective Pete Marino A body oddly draped in an unusual cloth has just been discovered inside the sheltered gates of MIT and it’s suspected the identity is that of missing computer engineer Gail Shipton last seen the night before at a trendy Cambridge bar It appears she’s been murdered mere weeks before the trial of her 100 million lawsuit against her former financial managers and Scarpetta doubts it’s a coincidence She Interminable Horrendous Boring Annoying This series is nothing like the old Scarpettas where she would actually talk about the crazed killer and spend time tracking him or her down These new books are full of internal monologues where Kay wonders what Lucy is doing what Benson is dealing with why Marino is the way he is and lots of dialog where everyone speaks disingenuously and never shares their deepest thoughtsLucy trusted someone and was let down again Benson is having trouble with his job Kay is conflicted and can't share her thoughts Marino is a caricature of his former self Bryce is an annoying chatterbox that I'm having trouble believing works for Scarpetta She would never suffer a fool like that gladly I'm sure there was an actual plot but it took forever to get to amongst all the bloviation I can't even give this book a single star because I felt like I got nothing out of it The characters should be familiar but they are notand the only bright thing is that I didn't spend a penny for this book I borrowed it Perhaps Cornwell should take some time off and try to focus herself better I suggest she re read her first 4 novels and try to re create that magic because it's not evident at all any
