I think all the characters in this book either began to channel their teenage selves, are constantly black-out drunk or have lost their minds. I’m enjoying the story, especially the villain, but the interactions between characters are head-scratchingly bizarre. Everyone is moody, angry and stomping around like fit throwing teenagers. 

Strange that I’m still enjoying the story and I already want to read the next one in the series. I just hope the characters calm down some in the next book.

I’m reading them out of order so maybe there’s something in the book before this one that explains the actions of the characters in Black notice

Patricia Cornwell delivers a high-stakes Kay Scarpetta novel with an intrigue that will take Kay an ocean’s length from home. The nightmare begins when a cargo ship arriving from Belgium at Richmond’s Deep Water Terminal is discovered to be transporting a locked, sealed container holding the decomposed remains of a stowaway.

The autopsy performed by Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta initially reveals neither a cause of death nor an identification. But the victim’s personal effects and an odd tattoo take Scarpetta on a hunt for information that leads to Interpol’s headquarters in Lyon, France, where she receives critical instructions: Go to the Paris morgue to receive secret evidence and then return to Virginia to carry out a mission. It is a mission that could ruin her career.

In a story that careens across international borders, Black notice puts Dr. Kay Scarpetta directly in harm’s way and places her and those she holds dear at mortal risk.
