Predator by Patricia Cornwell
Predator, the new novel by Patricia Cornwell, is the new Kay Scarpetta thriller in a long list of mysteries by the acclaimed author. In this book, Scarpetta faces roadblocks in her long-term relationship with Benton Wesley; discovers a disturbing fact about her niece, Lucy; and brings down another heinous serial killer. If you have a sensitive stomach, this book is not for you. It is very disturbing to read about the insane criminal mind and the atrocities that it commits, but it is oddly fascinating as well. It's like staring into the abyss and seeing the worst of humanity. I liked Predator better than Cornwell's last few books because she spends less time on the relationships between her characters, and more time developing the plot. Reading Predator is like peeling an onion one layer at a time. I recommend it for fans of mysteries and thrillers.
