Amazon.de

Virginia Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta has a bloody puzzle on her hands: five headless, limbless cadavers in Ireland, plus four similar victims in a landfill back home. Is a serial butcher loose in Virginia? That's what the panicked public thinks, thanks to a local TV reporter who got the leaked news from her boyfriend, Scarpetta's vile rival, Investigator Percy Ring. But the butchered bodies are so many red herrings intended to throw idiots like Ring off the track. Instead of a run-of-the-mill serial killer, we're dealing with a shadowy figure who has plans involving mutant smallpox, mass murder, and messing with Scarpetta's mind by e-mailing her gory photos of the murder scenes, along with cryptic AOL chat-room messages. The coolest innovation: Scarpetta's gorgeous genius niece, Lucy, equips her with a DataGlove and a VPL Eyephone, and she takes a creepy virtual tour of the e-mailed crime scene.

Unnatural Exposure boasts brisk storytelling, crackling dialogue, evocative prose about forensic-science sleuthing, and crisp character sketches, both of familiar characters like Scarpetta's gruff partner Pete Marino and bit players like the landfill employee falsely accused by Ring. Plus, let's face it: serial killers are old hat. Cornwell's most vivid villains are highly plausible backstabbing colleagues like Ring, who plots to destroy Lucy's FBI career by outing her as a lesbian. Some readers object to the rather abrupt ending, but, hey, it's less jarring than Hannibal's, and it's the logical culmination of Cornwell's philosophy about human nature. To illuminate the novel's finale, read Cornwell's remarks on paranoia in her Amazon.com interview. --Tim Appelo

3.0 von 5 Sternen Keine grandiosen Neuerungen... 20. Oktober 2001
Format:Taschenbuch
dafür aber bekannte Gesichter, wodurch sich der Leser in Cornwells Scarpetta Reihe zu Hause fühlt.
Schon nach ein paar Seiten haben auch neue Leser einen gewissen Draht zu den Eigenarten von Kay Scarpetta, die wie immer, bei Stress anfängt das zu tun, was sie nach eigener Aussage am besten kann: kochen. -
Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta hilft in Dublin der hiesigen Gerichtsmedizin etwas aus, um nebenbei bei alten, ungeklärten Mordfällen nach einer Verbindung zu ihren eigenen aktuellen Fällen zu suchen: einer enthaupteten und verstümmelten Leiche, die auf einer Mülldeponie auftaucht. Kurz darauf erhält Kay e-mail vom Täter, der offensichtlich Beachtung fordert. Die Ermittlungen wollen nicht voran gehen, wieder einmal stellen sich auch private Probleme und Interessen ein,im Konflikt zu den Ermittlungn und der Zusammenarbeit mit Ermitllungsbeamten, nun ja.
Was bei der ersten Leiche von Scarpetta als Herpes oder Gürtelrose identifiziert wird, entpuppt sich bei der zweiten Leiche als waffenfähiges Pockenvirus, welches sich auf einer Insel verbreitet. Spannend wird es, als Scarpetta selbst in Charantäne gesteckt wird, sehr zu ihrem Unmut und von ihrer Nichte Lucy, selbst Computerspezialistin beim FBI dazu gedrängt wird über den Computer mit dem potentiellen Täter zu kommunizieren.
Irgendwann geht jede Charantäne zu Ende und pünktlich dazu, wird auch der Standort des Täters lokalisiert. Wärenddessen ist der Obduktionsassistent erkrankt und stirbt natürlich, irgendwie muss in jedem Buch ein Mitarbeiter zum Wohle der Ermittlungen das Zeitliche segnen, nun ja ein bisschen Schwund ist eben immer.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Misses the mark 1. August 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I've been a fan of Patricia' Cornwell's books for some time, and this one just not up to her usual level of quality.
The book has a wonderfully interesting idea regarding the MO of the killer, but dissapointingly, this idea along with the character of the killer, is not really developed to the extent that you expect from earlier Cornwell novels.
Most of the book revolves around sub-plots of the relationships between the many characters that have become part of Kay Scarpett's life over the series of Novels. Unfortunately this comes at the expense of the story about the villain and the crimes.
My preference is for the earlier, leaner, Kay Scarpetta books that concentrate on the murder mystery, the science of forensics, and the interplay between Marino and Kay.

3.0 von 5 Sternen ANOTHER KAY SCARPETTA MYSTERY... 19. Januar 2003
Von Lawyeraau
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a somewhat interesting, Dr. Kay Scarpetta mystery, replete with its usual attention to forensic detail, as well as a myriad of subplots, contributing to the tension that is tautly maintained throughout the book. Though not her best novel, this one still manages to entertain the reader.
Once again, Dr. Scarpetta, Chief Medical Examiner, finds herself on the hunt for a serial killer, when the body of an elderly, dismembered woman is discovered in a Virginia landfill. Moreover, a mutated, high tech, small pox variant virus appears to be on the loose, and Dr. Scarpetta finds herself receiving taunting emails from the alleged killer, signing as "deadoc". Couple all this with an overly ambitious and unscrupulous law enforcement agent named Percy Ring who arrests an obviously innocent man for the elderly woman's death, and the reader has an intriguing mystery to unravel.
Homicide Detective Pete Marino is pivotal to the success of this book. His relationship and repartee with Dr. Scarpetta contribute to many of the book's highlights, and it is he who gives dimension to the book, as he is simply a wonderful, down to earth character. Dr. Scarpetta's relationship with FBI Agent Wesley Benton is less memorable, as he is on the periphery of the story, for the most part, though in the end he provides closure for the torch Dr. Scarpetta was carrying for her ex-lover, Mark.
The only real fly in the ointment, however, is the continued appearance of Dr. Scarpetta's niece, Lucy, who is an obnoxious character. In the real world, Lucy would not be allowed to hold the positions of responsibility that she does in the book, due to her complete immaturity. She is a loose cannon waitng to misfire at any moment. It flies in the face of her professionalism that Dr.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of her best 18. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This is an excellent book for a weekend by the fire read. Especcially if you enjoy murder and viruses. This is a different turn for Cornwell. In other books she usually deals with villains who are suffering from APD. However, a realistic, and frighteningly NORMAL bad guy is a good choice for a novel. I heartily recommend this book for anoyone who like trying to solve a crime along with that main character.

2.0 von 5 Sternen amazon readers right - book is weak 23. November 1997
Format:Hörkassette
Patricia Cornwell has written a good series of books but they seem to be going downhill, including with her latest novel, "Unnatural Exposure." It is the latest in the Dr. Kay Scarpetta series. Scarpetta is the Virginia medical examiner. When she's good, Cornwell can write some great, engaging, scary stories. But when's she bad, well, it's not pretty. For most of this book, she held my attention. Some of that momentum was kept up, though, by referring to characters and plot lines from the earlier books - as well as putting off some stories for the next one. The plot itself is good: a serial killer is hurting and killing selected people by releasing a mutated version of smallpox. The killer taunts her by sending electronic mail through American On-Line so the FBI tries to trip the killer up by having the real doctor and "deaddoc," the suspect's on-line name, meet in a chat room so they can trace the call. While the character of Scarpetta is interesting - it's not everyday that a medical examiner is the heroine - she is getting so hardened on the world (shades of Cornwell's famously guarded personality?) that she is becoming gradually less interesting. More interesting is her niece, Lucy, a computer expert working for the FBI who is being hassled because she is lesbian. After reading the book, and feeling the desire to throw it against the wall when the suspect was revealed, I checked to see what other readers thought of it by looking at reviews in Amazon.Com. Sure enough, most had the same opinion: this was a book that seemed rushed and is one of her weaker efforts. Several suggested focusing a story around Lucy instead of Kay, which is a pretty good idea. Overall, the characters in her book are becoming less interesting than I'm questioning whether I'll read another Cornwell book.
