I’ve been a Kay Scarpetta fan since Postmortem was released in 1990 and jumped at the chance to review Flesh and Blood.

I expected the same from F&B.

Bryant’s Gap is an intriguing murder mystery with much stronger character development than you see in many of today’s bestsellers. It harkens back to a time when people took the time to really get to know each other and build close relationships. There are also fun references to popular radio shows of the time period – who doesn’t love a good Lone Ranger reference?

I have always been a big fan of crime mysteries. I suppose for me, it satisfies that deep need for order and fairness in the world, along with a morbid curiosity for crime scenes and the incredibly detached mind that marks a psychopath. By nature, I am a peaceful person, so virtually delving into the horrific — but not scary — world of crime scenes is a bit of a trip for me. I’m a big fan of Dexter, a guy who harnesses his psychopathic serial killer curse to rid the world of other serial killers, but only the ones who target innocent people.
