Tag Archives: Kay Scarpetta


No, not the Arnold movie from the 80’s. I am talking about the Patricia Cornwell book of the same name. Predator refers to some acronym having to do with studying the brains of psychopaths and serial killers. The book was horrible. I hated it but I have read all of her other stuff so I continued to read on with all the books in this series. Well, I should not have done so. I should have stopped at Blowfly because that and Trace were equally sucky. It is time to put Kay Scarpetta out to pasture. She has ceased being a character that has any relevance. If you disagree or want to find out for yourself go ahead and read these three books. I think you will be disappointed.
