This series is what I call a "guilty pleasure". Not at all high-brow, but easy to read thrillers with some mystery, and I have to admit that I enjoy the gruesome details about forensic pathology. Being an engineering type, I like to know the details behind things, how things work, in particular when it comes to problem solving or investigative techniques.

I do love the character of Kay Scarpetta; she's a strong, smart woman who is also attractive. She makes me nuts sometimes when she does risky things that her superior brain should be telling her not to do, but then there wouldn't be a story, would there?

This is where I gave up reading the Scarpetta books for many years. I was so irritated when her love interest was killed off in this book, I vowed to never read another one. It seemed so unnecessary to the plot. Anyway, I've had a few years to cool off, so I may jump in a read a few more...
