Judy Vickie Lynn, I'm in agreement with you, as Patricia Cornwell's Scarpetta series were another very good series of novels that I would suggest. I'd also suggest Lisa Garner's different series of novels that she has written. If I'm not mistaken, she has 3 different series, and I've read all 3 of them.
Vicki Lynn I have read every death book that J D Robb has written. Two books a year never, ever gets boring. Should check out Patricia Cornwells Scarpetta. You would love it as well. She is a forensic doc married to an fib agent. Great reading there as well.
