    The 'book of the dead' is the morgue log, the ledger in which all cases are entered by hand. For Kay Scarpetta, however, it is about to have a new meaning.

Good read!

by pattyscca on Jun 3, 2010

I really enjoyed this book! I was behind on my "Scarpetta" saga reading & it was great to catch up. I got the impression that Ms. Cornwell was back in the groove with her writing. The copy I received was in great shape as well.

GREAT FORENSICS

by MommyDearest on Apr 2, 2009

This novel was long, but fast paced. If you like a lot of detail and forensic information then this book is for you. I had a problem keeping up with all the characters though. The ending was good, and finally brought the characters together. It?s a very good and imaginative mystery with a twisted ending and worth reading.

Cornwell carries on

by billinthewild on Aug 8, 2008

Good Scarpetta story. If you liked her others you will like this one as well. In the next one, a little Tony Soprano and the boys would lend a touch of real intrigue......

A true cornwellian thriller!

by jaysee on Jan 3, 2008

Book Of The Dead is a much needed hit for a cornwell junkie!!! an amazing book. I recomend it to any one that enjoys an emotional rollercoaster that leaves you beging for more! I absolutly cannot wait for the next book.

Great read

by LeAnn on Nov 19, 2007

Ms Cornwell is at the top of her game. I really enjoyed Book of the Dead. Her knack for bringing you along for the ride to the crime scene is perfect. Her forenic detail is fasinating and keeps the pages turning. I could not put this one down. Scarpetta's relationship with Lucy is like old times. Book of the Dead left me wanting more. I can't wait for Scarpetta 16. I would recommend Book of the Dead to my friends.
