Depraved Heart by Patricia Cornwell

This is the 23rd Kate Scarpetta novel. I generally never read out of order but this sounds good and was already in one of my many TBR stacks. I haven't read any of her books since the 1990's and I can't remember why I stopped-nor can I remember why I bought this copy. While this proved a quick read--reading this far out of order gave me some issues. I had a hard time relating to and/or empathizing with the "good" guys and even though she gave an enormous amount of back story it was still hard to connect with the characters- with many seeming to be simply pasted in-they are in all the books so they need to be in this one as well. Reading this one-- did cause me to remember that her books had a tendency to be repetitive after awhile and maybe that is why I stopped reading them.

Dear Diary and other Epistolary Styles

I was working through a category of books written in the Epistolary style during the Autumn months of 2019. As I was assembling this category I found many other books written as journal entries, diaries, emails, etc. So I began collecting these as well and they will be part of my 2021 reading.
