RED MIST is a welcome return to the style and character of Patricia Cornwell's early Kay Scarpetta novels. For a few years, the author's work was bitter and all the characters seemed angry; the books were not pleasant to read. It's great to welcome "the real" Kay Scarpetta back.

Kate Burton narrated this book beautifully. She gave each character a distinctive voice without overdoing the accents...even including a brief conversation with an Australian man! A good narrator can make or break a book, and Burton is the best reader for Cornwell of several I've heard.

The multiple murder mystery was well-plotted, and when the "whodunnit" was revealed, I felt that I had been given all the facts and a fair chance to figure it out along with Scarpetta.

As always Scarpetta is a facinating and complex character. She prays that the ratty old van will get her where she's going and while she describes the countryside and the difficulty of traveling it, she is at the same time giving you insights into the characters of Kathleen Lawler and Lola Daggette. You may find getting to the "meat" of the story a little drawn out - but believe me, it is worth the read.

One of her best, right up there with "The Body Farm" and "Black Notice".

Before reading this book, I had heard criticism from friends. But, now that I have read it, I must say that it's completely unfounded. The story unfolded beautifully and kept me enthralled. You get so involved in all the twists and turns that Scarpetta's life undergoes. Ms. Cornwell sets the stage very well, and leads you into the frightening world of sociopaths and sadists; and the interesting world of forensic medicine and the experts in the field. Scarpetta's skill as a forensic expert, coupled with the technology used just made my day (actually 4 hours, coz I just couldn't put it down)!

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "The aftermath of the bloodshed in 2010's Port Mortuary figures heavily in bestseller Cornwell's solid if scattered 19th thriller featuring medical examiner Kay Scarpetta. Lured from her home in Cambridge, Mass., to Savannah, Ga., to visit Kathleen Lawler — the woman who molested Scarpetta's recently murdered colleague, Jack Fielding, as a child and later bore their daughter — at the Georgia Prison for Women, Scarpetta angrily realizes that she's been tricked. Ex-Manhattan ADA Jaime Berger wants Scarpetta's help exonerating a woman on death row for the murder nine years earlier of Savannah's Dr. Clarence Jordan and his family. What first seems like a cold case becomes terrifyingly current when fresh bodies start appearing. Scarpetta begins questioning whether the Jordan family slaying is linked to the murders in Massachusetts in Mortuary at the hands of Dawn Kincaid, the brilliant psychopath daughter of Lawler and Fielding. As in other recent work, Cornwell overloads the plot, but Scarpetta's tangled emotional state and her top-notch forensic knowledge more than compensate. Author tour. Agent: Esther Newberg at ICM." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
"Review" by , "Scarpetta is one of the most believable characters in crime fiction."
"Review" by , "When it comes to the forensic sciences, nobody can touch Cornwell."
"Review" by , "Cornwell has created a character so real, so compelling, so driven that this reader has to remind herself regularly that Scarpetta is just a product of an author’s imagination."
"Synopsis" by , The new Kay Scarpetta novel from the world's #1 bestselling crime writer.

Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning of something far more destructive: a terrifying terrain of conspiracy and potential terrorism on an international scale. And she is the only one who can stop it.
