Dr. Scarpetta holds special meaning for me because I was in a terribly abusive relationship a number of years ago and her strength got me through it. I enjoyed every book to such degree that it was my one pleasure that I could escape to. Nowadays, I'm out of that situation and so much healthier. Thank you Patricia Cornwell! I really admire your brillance and creativity.

Psychiatric! What a great place for hidden meanings for the lay person to deciper...I love the premise. Write more of these, I'm sure there are plots in abundance!
