Summary:

The new Kay Scarpetta novel from the world's #1 bestselling crime writer.

'When it comes to the forensic sciences, nobody can touch Cornwell.'
-The New York Times Book ReviewPort Mortuary, the title of Patricia Cornwell's eighteenth Scarpetta novel, is literally a port for the dead. In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high- tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she accepted a scholarship from the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt. Now, more than twenty years and many career successes later, her secret military ties have drawn her to Dover Air Force Base, where she has been immersed in a training fellowship.

As the chief of the new Cambridge Forensic Center in Massachusetts, a joint venture of the state and federal governments, MIT and Harvard, Scarpetta is confronted with a case that could shut down her new facility and ruin her personally and professionally.

    The book seems to be mostly Kay speaking to herself and the reader is terribly monotonous! Very disappointing. I'll have to finish it, but she doesn't make it easy.

    Listening to this story felt like someone was talking your head off. Just rambling details that were unnecessary. Could not finish it.

    Some authors give a very good "visual" description of a scene which adds to the story. However, Patricia Cornwell, adds details where absolutely not necessary making it feel that she just tries to fill-in on a very thin story. Total waste of time.

    Was not one of author's best book. Many boring parts and rambling on. Could have been better if it was a shorter book sticking to the plot.
