Item description for Predator by Patricia Daniels Cornwell & Cristina Martin...

Dr. Kay Scarpetta, now freelancing with the National Forensic Academy in Florida, takes charge of a case that stretches from steamy Florida to snowbound Boston---one as unnerving as any she has ever faced. The teasing psychological clues lead Scarpetta and her team to suspect that they are hunting someone with a cunning and malevolent mind whose secrets have kept them in the shadows, until now.

Reviews - What do customers think about Predator?

I just reread Predator to compare it to the more recent Book of the Dead by Cornwell. I absolutely loved Predator and have a feeling that the one star reviews from people on this board either 1) didn't get the point of the book, as it was a bit complex, or 2) are simply looking for some tired old regurgitated prepackaged crime story that follows a recipe to a predictable end. This is never the case with Cornwell, who constantly amazes me with her originality, and timeliness of her original research. Yes, one had to pay attention while reading this book but for those of us who actually enjoy the unfolding of a story, that's the fun of it. For those of you who want something simpler or more predictable, try another author-keep it up Cornwell-we love it!
Predator  Jun 30, 2008
I have always found Patricia Cornwell novels excellent. I enjoy the ones with Kay Scarpetta in them... have not enjoyed the others as much. I have read every book with Kay Scarpetta in them and am anxiously awaiting the next one.
Analyzing the predator  May 7, 2008
'Predator' was my introduction to Patricia Cornwell's books. I do wish that I'd chosen to start with a previous book instead of using Predator as my introduction to Cornwell's cast. The book immediately throws its characters into a chaotic mess of roiling emotions, paranoia and anger fueled by sabotage, and I think this would have more impact after having followed the characters around under more 'normal' (for them, anyway) circumstances for a few books. That said, I was still able to get into the characters, get a sense for them and their lives, and appreciate most of what was happening to them.

Cornwell writes in a clinical, almost detached present tense that wouldn't work for most writers; in most books it would keep the reader distant and uninvolved. Instead, in this case it beautifully conveys the way in which the investigators go about their work without also robbing the story of its emotive impact. I'm sure there are people who won't enjoy this approach, but I liked it.

Obviously since this is the first of Cornwell's books that I've read I can't speak to ongoing issues, relationships, etc. in the books, or to its quality vs. her other novels, but as a first read of her work I definitely enjoyed it and hope to read more soon.
Simply awful.  Apr 28, 2008
This book was like half a book -- something Cornwell sat down and spewed out over a long weekend or so. In general, authors would then go back and edit their work, but it appears in this case that her half-baked manuscript somehow made it past all the editorial gatekeepers, straight to hard copy.

I hate how everyone in Scarpetta's life is so dysfunctional, grumpy, and repetitive. And I hate how Cornwell left us hanging with so many unanswered questions and incomplete plot points (what the heck happened to Joe???). And I hate that I spent money on this awful book.
Great Book  Apr 7, 2008
I am not sure why this book got so many 1 star's, but this book was really good. I love the way that Scarpetta handles all the different twist and turn's in her life. I would recommend this book to anyone to read, Another great book by Patricia Cornwell.
