Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Cornwell combines bone-rattling suspense with an insider's view of forensic science as her sleuth, Richmond, Va., medical examiner Kay Scarpetta, investigates a series of grim murders of young couples. A 13-week PW bestseller, a Mystery Guild selection and a Literary Guild featured alternate in cloth.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

YA-- The decomposed bodies of Fred Cheyney and Deborah Harvey don't show up for months, well into Dr. Kay Scarpetta's account of her investigation into their disappearance. The two lovers are the fifth pair in a string of mysterious ``couple murders,'' all bearing the same characteristics: two young people completely vanish, leaving behind an abandoned car and no clues about their fate. Months later the skeletal remains are found by hunters in remote wooded locales, and no evidence about the causes of death can be discovered. At the same time, the FBI appears to be foiling attempts to discover the identity of the murderer by withholding crime-scene information, and Kay's old friend Abby, a newspaper reporter, complicates matters by conducting her own search for the truth. This rich brew makes for a compelling story to which Cornwell has added such stand-bys from her two previous Scarpetta novels as Pete Marino, a middle-aged police detective, and Benton Wesley, an FBI investigator who knows how to keep a secret. Mystery-loving YAs and fans of Cornwell's previous novels will enjoy her latest.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A female pathologist, dressed in white overalls and rubber boots and carrying a heavy bag, raises the tape and enters the crime scene. Who is she? Well, she is one of a species of investigators that has become enormously popular in recent years. Writer Patricia Cornwall has depicted her in a highly successful series, calling her Dr Kay Scarpetta. With training in forensic pathology herself, and a string of awards for her books, Miss Cornwall's achievements have elevated her to the top of the queue of authors waiting to be read by this reviewer.
I found much to admire, in this my first Patricia Cornwall book. Plotting and planning have been meticulously done. A disappointing ending - so often the ruination of a good crime novel - has been avoided. The narration is in clean, plain sentences. Cornwall has her forensic pathologist character, Dr Kay Scarpetta, lead the investigation into a series of killings, and her knowledge of the forensic pathology involved is highly impressive.
Reducing my admiration, however, are several deficiencies. I happen to like crime investigation novels that mix some charm, warmth, caprice or eccentricity into the investigative proceedings. Cornwall keeps all these additives locked away in her cupboard. Dr Kay Scarpetta's life is a distinctly feminist, answering machine, laboratory gowned and masked one, at least in this book. Am I looking in the wrong place if I expect wit, warmth, vibrant male-female interaction or spruce dialogue as I follow a forensic pathologist investigating serial killings? As if she were aware of the need for these "cozy" qualities, Patricia Cornwall introduced a niece for Dr Kay Scarpetta in her first book which I am now reading, allowing something like maternalism to soften the otherwise strong feminist atmosphere that pervades "All That Remains".

This is the first book I've read by Patricia Cornwell. It will also be my last. I am absolutely baffled by the hundreds of positive reviews here on Amazon. This book was one of the worst I have ever read.
First, it was so long and drawn out. By the time you get to the end, you're on the edge of your seat waiting for that knock 'em dead moment when the killer is revealed and all of the clues are explained. Instead, you get a boring, predictable, disappointing ending that goes nowhere. It was like Cornwell just gave up on the story. There were so many characters who could have been the killer - their erratic behavior explained and an interesting ending provided. No such luck.
Also, Kay's lack of closure with Mark irritated me. There is no ending to their story. Just disappointing overall.

This my favorite Patrica Cornwell book that deals with her charecter Dr. Kay Scarpetta. There is some guy out there killing young couples in the Virginia area. The press seemingly always without imagination in these types of books has started to call him "The Couple Killer".
With mounting political preasure Scarpetta has to do what she is good at...crack the case.
Some people give this serise a hard time because Scarpetta spends most of her time doing the actual field investigations not really any forenscis work. I was fine with that and I respect the fact that authors couldn't sell many books if they just had the main charecter working in a lab all day.
What annoyed me was Abby's charecter never in my entire life have I actually been praying for the bad guy to kill one of the charecters. Did she always whine so much?
All the other members of the supporting cast I liked Morino, The old black guy even the couple killer. They all had depth, life and a sense of humor.
I had only read the first and one other in this serise. I plan to go get some more. I suggest you do the same.
