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... ( )

Good, even though you know who did it, book tries to make conclusion vague. ( )

Fun read...Kay Scarpetta, our heroine, hangs in there against entrenched bureaucracy and Washington DC favorite political appointees. But, her relationships go nowhere. Nobody reviews Pete Marino; in this book, she remakes him into a decent human being from a slob. One wonders if Cornwell knows somebody like that and does a virtual redo. Page turner that does not lag or sag. Show me the next book! ( )

Kay Scarpetta, Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Virginia, is back in Patricia D. Cornwell's crime novel All That Remains. Those who remember my previous comments about Body of Evidence and Postmortem will want to read this one right away. It has skeletonized bodies, conspiracies, a little bit of psychic tom-foolery, and CIA spookery, all wrapped into a very entertaining, hard-to-put-down package. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 074349153X, Mass Market Paperback)

A serial killer is loose in Richmond, specializing in attractive young couples whose bodies are inevitably found in the woods months later -- minus their shoes and socks. After months of exposure to all the elements, all that remains of this killer's victims has in every case left Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta unable even to determine an exact cause of death. Frustrated that her high-tech forensic skills have apparently proved useless, Kay enlists the help of and ace crime reporter and a psychic whose powers have been vouched for by the FBI.

Racing against time, Kay finds she must draw upon her own personal resources to track down a murderer skilled at eliminating every clue. All that remains to her now is her courage and intuition and the will to stop a killer before he can strike again.
