The Bone Bed by Patricia Cornwell Book Summary

From one of the world’s number top selling crime writers comes the extraordinary twentieth Kay Scarpetta novel.

A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over two thousand miles away in Boston. She has no idea why.
But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist’s disappearance is connected to a series of crimes much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.
When she turns to those around her, Scarpetta finds that the danger and suspicion have penetrated even her closest circles. Her niece Lucy speaks in riddles. Her lead investigator, Pete Marino, and FBI forensic psychologist and husband, Benton Wesley, have secrets of their own. Feeling alone and betrayed, Scarpetta is tempted by someone from her past as she tracks a killer both cunning and cruel.

The Bone Bed (Patricia Cornwell) Book Reviews

Bone BedDisappointed, foul language unnecessary, Scarpetta has gone from a strong character to someone who sees every woman as a threat to her career and her marriage. I think all the characters are becoming head cases. I have read every one of the Kay Scarpetta books and this just may be my last. The last few just have not been up to the same standard that the earlier books were..Score: 1/5

The Beast WithinI have enjoyed reading Patricia Cornwell’s Scarpetta series for several years now. For some reason I liked this one a little better than the rest. Maybe because the “gang’s all here”, maybe because of the psychological aspects, the why we tick the way we tick. Human beings can and do have a breaking point. There is obviously a lot of homework done on this one, per usual, and with some mild twists and turns. The Douglas Burke character almost went to far, but then when she died I thought, “I would’ve liked to see her sent to Louisville, and then maybe at some point a psychological profile be completed”. But that’s just me..Score: 5/5

The bone bedPlease Patricia lighten up with Kay. The story lines between Kay, Pete and Lucy are so dark these last 4 books that I don't think I'm going to buy the next one. And I'm a huge fan. Sigh......Score: 2/5

DisappointedThis book seemed too hung up on the details of the medical examiner process, too much "soap opera" and not enough mystery. Probably my last Patricia Cornwell read..Score: 1/5

The Bone BedThis book was well worth the read. As always Patricia Cornwell knows how to tell a tale. Dr. Kay Scarpetta continues to evolve as a character and I always look forward to her adventures. I find it hard to put these stories down. Solving crimes and tracking serial killers is Dr. Scarpetta's speciality. If you enjoy a spell binding look at forensics, all of the Scarpetta books are good..Score: 4/5

The Bones BedAnother excellent book by Patricia Cornwell. This really had me going and I had no idea who the killer was. Great!.Score: 5/5

The Bone BedRather hard to read. Words and sentences don't flow like her other books. Very difficult to follow or anticipate. Character building is shallow. Topic is predictable. I knew she would become a victim again..Score: 3/5

The Bone BedAs usual, Dr. Kay put the reader in her shoes as she's looking at evidence, extrapolating theories, and trying to put together the puzzle of murder. I thought I knew the culprit early on, but once again I was surprised. That's one of the reasons I like the Scarpetta series. This jaded mystery reader can experience the thrill of being caught off guard..Score: 5/5

Bone BedThis book is a waste of time and money. Three different crimes that don't really get tied together until the very end of the book. The murderer is not introduced until very late in the story and there is absolutely nothing that points to him until the very climax in the last few pages. I can't believe it got 3 1/2 stars..Score: 1/5

Not her best effort by any means.The tension just wasn't there. I didn't get involved with the characters and I never felt Scarpetta's life was endangered at any point. A very lackluster job..Score: 3/5
