Final Thoughts4 of 5 stars to Patricia Cornwell s fifth book in the Kay Scarpetta series, The Body Farm, published in 1994 The title alone tells you what kind of book this will be, and it is full of thrills and suspense Scarpetta has an opportunity to try to capture a serial killer she s dealt with sometime in the past And with the history she needs to revisit in this one, you will learn a lotabout who she is and what s happened to bring her to today.Another good part of this book is the development of Scarpetta s relationship with her niece, Lucy Lucy s now 21 and supposed to be an adult however, her behaviors are still somewhat immature I like getting to know the character , even though she isn t too likable at this point Detective Pete Marino is prominent again, and you want to love him but he still makes you angry.As Scarpetta finds different body parts all over the place, she knows she s close to meeting her match The cleverness and complexity in this book makes it one of the better ones It s still early on in the series before the books get too governmental and formal, in regard to Scarpetta s career The games being played are quite amusing and scary Given the creepiness of the killer s plans, this is another fine entry in the seriesAbout MeFor 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 who what when where 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 creators polldaddy poll 9729544 polldaddy poll 9719251 Arrgh From the misnomered title A body farm is only in a small portion of the book to the implausible plot how did this get past editors SPOILER For startersOnly 3 people work at this TOP SECRET section of the FBI and 2 are dismissed because of malfeasance One has a dubious past and lied on her application Come on Our protagonist easily found that out, but NOBODY from the bureau vetted this crooked employee Geez Give me a break I m willing to suspend a bit of logic but I am NOT willing to check my brain at the door There are many other problems with the storylineScarpetta returns to the crime scene at night and forgets a flashlight Really Her partner may be in grave danger and she says NOTHING A child is missing and NOBODY thinks to search her home but Kay does Scarpetta enters a suspected killer s home without a gun, yet she sleeps with one next to her bed at all times Right Truly, I didn t really even like care about the main charactershe was a snobby know it all and she was sleeping with a married man Sorry I wasted my time reading this. The Body Farm is Dr Kay Scarpetta s fifth novel, published in 1994 Her dear niece s age has been hastily augmented to twenty one I was certain Lucy was under twelve in their 1990 introduction I dislike violence, crime thrillers, forensics, even sad or tragic novels I abhor reading about horror or grief The personal perspective of Kay s teammates, family, friends, and my familiarity with them make all her series exceptions When one wants content that isserious than light mysteries, stepping past the lines of non grotesque, standard adult mysteries occurs Patricia Cornwell s novels are a successful effort in higher tolerance.I ask authors to cease hurling cat deaths into fiction This will always deduct a star but especially with the horrific addition so pointless and arbitrary to the novel The main victim had died and that depraved act could not torment her Besides the animal death deal breaker and difficulty I had, believing the murderer identity and motive against feline and humans the pace was fast and multifaceted I traversed 374 pages in a rush of interest that never waned.An additional, necessary criticism is that a major plot point and suspect was untouched and unexplained If it was a red herring, a major series criminal should not have been used That criminal s plot, pertaining to Lucy s FBI training, suggests that his unwarranted appearance sets up a succeeding novel The heroine having an affair rattles my respect no matter what the state of her paramour s marriage might be Although his wife is a seldom appearing cardboard figure, she is highly likeable It seems I come to three stars anyway The pace, complexity, and personal urgency were written well, keeping emotions and interest high I look forward to Patricia s next novel, after my habitual break to absorb other tones of fiction and non fiction.
