Blow Fly: A Scarpetta Novel — book review
Blow Fly is a crime fiction novel by Patricia Cornwell. Well, what to say. Jul 02, Pages. Given the interesting changes and confusion, I wasn’t super keen on this book; however the plot and mystery aspects were vornwell, so I it evened-out for me.
I don’t agree with the majority of the negative feedback or comments that I’ve read about this book. Lots of characters but the book is well compartmentalized — over chapters.

I will reserve judgment on the use of the narrative until I see how Cornwell develops in in future novels, or if this was a one-off.

Blow Fly (Kay Scarpetta, #12) by Patricia Cornwell
I will be honest Thankfully, all of the bad guys finally get dead in this book and, in future books, Cornwell can move Bowfly back to her Richmond, Virginia roots in an attempt to try to recapture a bit of what lured fans to the initial books in the series. So Scarpetta packed up her belongings and set out for the corbwell and solace of the Florida sun. Just as things seem to pick up and things are about to happen, all the action happens off-the-page and then the book ends.
