Filled with tension and continual surprises, Unnatural Exposure is a thrilling chapter in Virginia Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta's life--and a triumph for #1 New York Times best-selling author Patricia Cornwell. The body of an elderly woman is found dismembered in a Virginia landfill. Scarpetta initially believes the clues mirror that of a serial killer she's tracked before, but upon further investigation, she discovers puzzling pox-like erruptions on the woman's body that, perhaps, point in another direction. When the killer contacts her via e-mail, Scarpetta enlists the aid of her computer-savvy niece, Lucy, to help track this monster through cyberspace. Learning that the Virginia victim was exposed to a high-tech virus that might unleash an epidemic, Scarpetta realizes she's dealing with a sophisticated mind. Her investigation leads her from the government's biological defense facility in Utah, to Atlanta's Center for Disease Control--and eventually to quarrantine, when it is discovered that Scarpetta has been exposed to this fatal virus. Along the way, she's forced to deal with the unscrupulous ambitions of a slick FBI agent, Lucy's problems, and her own turbulent feelings for Agent Wesley Benton.

I read this series years ago, and am thoroughly enjoying listening to it again. Younger Scarpetta series is really good and gripping. Hoping more come to audiobook. Very good storyline. I like that the author doesn't waste a lot of time redescribing her characters, just a quick recap and on she goes. I recommend this series.

Average story. Didn’t have me overwhelmed by anticipation. I found the narrator irritating . That’s why I abandoned it about 40 minutes before the end.

Another great read from Patricia Cornwell. I really enjoy the Kay Scarpetta series. The narrator C.J. Critt is great! I wish she would have narrated all of the Kay Scarpetta series.

The book was very technical and a little boring. None of the "usual" suspense found in Ms. Cornwell's books. I listened to the first disc and then skipped to the last disc so that I could find out "who done it".

Love the Kay Scarpetta series and all the characters. This one was just as good as the others I have listened to, can't wait to get another one!

I just do not like the story in addition to the poor reader. Cornwell also seems to have an air of arrogance that is distracting in several of her books.

This was pretty typical Cornwell fare, and medical examiner Kay Scarpetta is up to her old tricks. Cornwell can always be relied on for a solid story and interesting plot twists and this book is no exception. Even if you have never listened to a Cornwell before, this is a good one.
