Amazing - moving - can't say goodbye yet, think I'll start the whole series from the beginning again.

My only complaint is the narrator pronouncing "live ships" instead of "live ships", very, very, irritating and I don't know how this error wasn't picked up.

The body of a woman has been discovered inside the gates of MIT, draped in an unusual cloth. An examination reveals that the body is covered in a fine dust that under ultra-violet light fluoresces blood-red, emerald-green and sapphire-blue. As Kay Scarpetta pieces together the evidence, she draws herself and her team deeper into the dark world of designer drugs, drone technology and shocking corruption at the highest level.

I have been a fan of Cornwell for years and have avidly followed Scarpetta. I read the less than encouraging reviews of this latest book but decided that I should make my own decision; unfortunately they were correct. This book is poorly written and the dialogue very stilted and false sounding. Even intense exchanges between Kay and Benton sound far removed from reality. The story line is all over the place not realistic. I stuck with the book almost to the end - 1:54 left - but couldn't bring myself to finish it.
