The 16th chapter of the series is titled just like that of the series, Scarpetta. This seems to be some sort of attempt in reviving the Scarpetta novel series, which has seen a dip in the quality of writing in the few later chapters. The keen followers of Patricia Cornwell and her Scarpetta series would unanimously agree that there have been some definite issues in the writing standards in the later chapters of the saga. Many of them called “RIP Scarpetta” after listening through the 15th chapter of the series. However, if you want to check the real essence of what the Scarpetta novel series is all about then do check out The Last Precinct and Blow Fly novels.
Kate Reading is the performer of this chapter from the Scarpetta series, who has already given her voice in a few other chapters of it. The performance was just average. Kate has done quite well in this series before as compared to what you will listen to in this novel.
Dr. Kay Scarpetta has left behind her old private forensic practice in South Caroline and has now accepted a new role in New York City. She has been called here by the NYPD for examining an injured person in the psychiatric prison ward of a hospital. The patient was Oscar bane, who was handcuffed and completely chained. The patient himself had asked for Scarpetta and the story that she heard was one of the most bizarre ones that she has ever come across. This then leads to a very intense investigation conducted by Scarpetta.
The plot of this chapter Scarpetta is quite slow and boring. If you are a regular follower of this series then this chapter will disappoint you as this is not what you expect from Patricia Cornwell.
