Patricia Cornwell is the queen of gritty, grisly, crime fiction writing and her latest offering doesn't disappoint. Book of the Dead will keep you gripped throughout
"The reason we read novels about the forensic investigation of crime is not artistic decorum but a fascination with how things work. This is what Cornwell has always provided, and it is an area in which she does not disappoint." Times Literary Supplement
Classic Cornwell territory with...a sharp political element that will ensure the book isn't on George Bush's bedside table
Serving up an Ace....Cornwell is firmly back on the money here.
