I’ve been a Kay Scarpetta fan since Postmortem was released in 1990 and jumped at the chance to review Flesh and Blood. Author Patricia Cornwell has always been a masterful storyteller who could keep me up all night to finish her books in one sitting and leave me too terrified to go to sleep when I did finally finish. 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?

There are actually three different mysteries presented in The Sound of Broken Glass, but they all blend together seamlessly. The main one, of course, is the case of a respected barrister who is found naked, bound and apparently strangled in a basement hotel room. Was it murder or an accident? Detective Inspector Gemma James and her team must follow some seemingly unrelated leads to discover what really happened that night. Our second mystery revolves around thirteen year old Andy and his next door neighbor Nadine…
