Cause of Death: Patricia Cornwell - Book 7, 2009

Cause of Death: Patricia Cornwell Type: Crime/Detective
Rating: 6/10
Comments: I generally like murder mysteries of all types and was looking forward to this book but I ended up being more irritated than entertained. I found it really hard to engage with the protagonist, a completely neurotic and emotionally distant perfectionist. And sentences such as: "The lasagne was superb because I had drained fresh mozzarella in dishcloths too much during baking and, of course, the pasta was fresh" reeked of the author's own over-research and obsessive perfection and did nothing to add to the story or character development in any way.
