What other readers are saying about this title:
PREDATOR is an improvement over Cornwell’s most recent novels, but not quite as interesting as her earliest works. In this book Scarpetta is in Florida, along with Marino. Meanwhile, her boyfriend Wesley is in Boston examining the physiologiy of criminals. The two threads of the plot tie together, along with an appearance by Lucy, Scarpetta’s niece. Overall PREDATOR is "OK" for longtime fans of the author. The plot is somewhat interesting, but at times graphic. Cornwell seems to have lost her edge in writing highyl detailed crime novels, as this book focuses more on personalities than anything else.

Cornwell’s earlier books were much better written. This one was very hard to read; there did not seem to be any continuity throughout. Some of the victims were never explained and some loose ends never ’tied up’. Overall a very disappointing book by an author I used to enjoy.

I put this book down when the cat got killed. I don't think that was necessary and I certainly didn't enjoy it, which is why I read fiction. I have crossed Ms. Cromwell off my reading list.
