It's Christmastime in Richmond, Virginia, but no one seems merry--least of all Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, back for her 10th outing as a crime-solving coroner. Actress Kate Reading also returns, reading her third unabridged audio for Patricia Cornwell's death-drenched series. This one finds Scarpetta still recovering from the murder of her lover and in a generally foul mood as an investigation of a badly decomposed body leads her to INTERPOL, and eventually, Paris. Series regulars Police Detective Pete Marino, recently demoted, and niece Lucy are in equally cantankerous states of mind, resulting in more blue language than Cornwell regulars may be used to. Reading proves she's up to the task, maintaining multiple distinct voices and highlighting the occasional humor in the overwhelmingly dark novel. A London-based stage actress, she captivates the listener without careening into melodrama. (Running time: 12.5 hours, 8 cassettes) --Kimberly Heinrichs

The postmortem is in--Black Notice, the 10th in Patricia Cornwell's Scarpetta series--is a gore- splattered, intensely exciting read.

As winter grips Richmond, Virginia, an air of sombreness pervades chief medical examiner Kay Scarpetta's world. Her beloved niece Lucy is involved in a dangerous undercover police operation in Miami, and auntie fears for her life. A tyrannical new deputy chief, Diane Bray, wants to get Kay's department under her jurisdiction. Meanwhile, back at the office, someone has tinkered with the e-mail system, stealing Kay's identity and sending off slanderous and hurtful messages. Emotionally battered, Scarpetta fears she is going insane. Or, could it be that someone is deliberately sowing this harvest of sorrow?

Despite her personal problems, Scarpetta is still the reigning diva at the department of death. She is sent to investigate the purified remains of a man found inside a container ship, "eyes bulged froglike, and the scalp and beard were sloughing off with the outer layer of darkening skin." Kay finds strange, animal-like hairs on the man's clothing--the same hairs that she discovers on a murdered store clerk a few days later. In actuality, the bizarre killings extend well beyond Virginia; whoever killed the Richmond victims also butchered people in France. Kay and police captain Pete Marino are whisked off to Paris where they must collect top-secret information from a Paris morgue, and avoid becoming victims themselves.

This macabre tome is the stuff that classic Scarpetta tales are made of: creepy but compulsive autopsy scenes, plentiful plot twists and the compelling, if slightly more vulnerable, chief medical examiner herself. --Naomi Gesinger

Für ihre Serie über Prostitution und Kriminalität im Zentrum von Charlotte gewann sie schon bald einen Preis für investigativen Journalismus. Später war Patricia Cornwell u. a. Leiterin einer forensischen Abteilung an der Universität von Tennessee. So hat sie die Welt des Verbrechens gleich von mehreren Seiten kennengelernt. All diese Perspektiven vereint sie in ihrem neuen "Job": dem der Krimiautorin. Patricia Cornwell gilt heute als eine der Besten des Genres.

3.0 von 5 Sternen gut aber nicht ihr bestes 6. Dezember 2000
Von Ein Kunde
das schoene an ihren buechern ist, dass die charaktere sich weiterentwickeln. schade ist allerdings bei black notice, dass es leider zu ihren schwaecheren buechern gehoert. als scarpetta-fan bleibt man an der handlung dran, aber das interesse an der fortentwicklung sinkt. schade eigentlich.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ho-Hum What has happened to Scarpetta 27. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Scarpetta novels started with a driven career woman who would not let anything stand in her way, she got on with her life and got the baddies with the help of Police officer Marino, in this installment, Scarpetta is a weak-willed woman, who stalls and strays on her quest for the right answers. Not one of Cornwell's best.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Well-Written, But Extremely Depressing 21. Juli 2000
Von Martina
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Patrica Cornwell has created such a wonderful character in Kay Scarpetta, but she seems to be running out of ideas. Kay's life is getting so depressing, it's getting progressively harder to read this series. They've now killed off two of her love interests in a row [both in law enforcement], which ranks her just below Sipowicz on NYPD Blue on the unbelievable string of tragedies scale.
I still enjoyed this book, but Black Notice was an appropriate name. Because the character is a coroner, and there is so much death and tragedy, Cornwell needs to add at least some reason for these characters [Kay, and her equally depressed neice, Lucy] to want to go on living.
The book was good enough to recommend to Cornwell fans, but I won't read her next book unless I am in a really upbeat, resilient mood, so I won't feel like jumping off a bridge when I'm done!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great plot and writing; disappointing, weak ending 20. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I thought the writing in the first 3/4 of Black Notice was some of the best Cornwell has delivered. The plot was interesting, multi-faceted and believable; and Kay was definitely, to me, a more three-dimensional, realistic and sympathetic character than in the previous Scarpetta novels. But I did find the romance with Talley, which apparently is "still on" at the (non)end of the book highly implausible. Not because Kay couldn't or shouldn't be able to fall in love with another man after having lost Benton, but simply because he seemed too shallow and immature...mainly a pretty face.... to attract someone like her. But the reeeeally big complaint I have about this book is its incredibly abrupt, rushed-up, totally frustrating ending. Honestly, I kept looking to see if some pages were missing from my copy! An author shouldn't treat her readers in such a cavalier fashion. After having developed the story, with lots of fascinating sub-plots, to that point and then to have Dr. Scarpetta (duh!) open the door to someone who *says* he's a policeman (when we all know who's on the other side of the door and anyone with Kay's brains would be more wary), *then* to rush things from that point to an unrealistic, frustrating non-conclusion (obviously meant to whet our appetites for the next book)...these shortcuts on the author's part combined to ruin the book for me and leave me feeling really cheated when I finished it! I think I've decided to wait and look at other readers' comments on the next Cornwell book, rather than pre-ordering a copy of my own.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Might Have Been Good... 15. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Kay Scarpetta was interseting and intriguing in the first books of the series. But now everything seems more of the same and the characters make you madder than ever. It seems that the people in Cornwall's novel have some strange ways of showing their emotions and seem a little too fake at times. Some parts of it seem to copy one of her earlier books, Body of Evidence. This made it seem like the same old story. It's a book that is worth reading but not one that I would run out and buy the instant it hit the shelves. I won't discourage others from reading it but some of her other books are a little better. I can't wait for the next installation in the Kay Scarpetta series, regardless of this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Black notice and betes noires 5. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Once again Kay Scarpetta is pitched against the hidden monster with some arcane disorder; once again she is flung between law enforcement agencies both compelling and corrupt; once again she is threatened and vulnerable. But will she once again triumph? Here is Patricia Cornwell at her political best: she has matured as a writer and brings to the reader a consideration of the investigative process more developed than the early days of a few cobbled together FBI profiles. In Black Notice, Scarpetta has become smarter than her mentors and tutors: but is she smarter than the beasts, both real and remembered, that pursue her? Readers should not be disappointed.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Better than before but still morose 26. Juni 2000
Von Catmindu
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Scarpetta has become so highly strung that it must be only a matter of time when she falls apart totally. Although the writing generates empathy in me for Kay, I agree with the reviewer who suggests a sabbatical. What she has to endure in each book borders on inhuman AND inhumane. All this heroine ansgt makes the book somewhat heavy and morose. I did find the office politics an interesting diversion (and for me, real life) from the usual absorption in detailed autopsies or gruesome discoveries. All that aside, I enjoyed this book more than recent previuous ones. I am slowly coming to terms with the horrendous death on Benton - this book almost helps that catharsis. I still prefer Kay Scarpetta as a character to those introduced in 'Hornets nest'.
