Anyone read Cornwell's most recent book, Red Mist? (I haven't yet.)

Not yet but the second I see it in the store I will be reading it. Well, I might wait until I get home...they aren't as good as they used to be but I still enjoy the series.

I read a review that said Red Mist is more similar to her original style (in terms of plot/characters) so it's a better story than the recent ones. Haven't read it myself though but now may just have to give it one more shot!

I just picked this up at the library. I didn't realize that she has a new one, The Bone Bed, published late last year.

I really enjoyed Red Mist. Also just finished The Scarpetta Factor, which I didn't think was quite as good as her others.

Just read Cornwell's most recent, Bone Bed. It was phenomenal.

I just ordered the free Kindle sample of Bone Bed. It doesn't sound too promising, based on reviews. For starters, Wesley Benton? Wasn't he killed off some time ago?

Like so many others have said, I got tired of her books a long time ago. I got really, really tired of Lucy. We get it......she's an angry lesbo.

I'll check out the free sample but won't get my hopes up. Authors tend to get boring. I feel the same about James Patterson. His grandma has become terribly tiresome. Even my love affair with Preston & Child is wearing thin.

Scarpetta believed Benton Wesley to be dead (his death was faked) but he ended up in a protected witness program.

I agree with Dale Cooper, Lucy the angry lesbian is always ticked off. Enough, already! We GET it. Kay seems constantly depressed/confused/frustrated. Benton Wesley is not a particularly likable character. Marino...well....what can I say? I liked him better when he had a crush on Kay LOL

If I do read her new stuff, it will be because I got them from the library. No more spending a lot on her books...lately they have just disappointed.
