Journal Entry 1 by midwinter from Tucson, Arizona USA on Thursday, March 2, 2006
Cornwell, a former reporter who has worked in a medical examiner's office, sets her first mystery in Richmond, Va. Chief medical officer for the commonwealth of Virginia, Dr. Kay Scarpetta, the narrator, dwells on her efforts to identify "Mr. Nobody," the strangler of young women. The doctor devotes days and nights to gathering computer data and forensic clues to the killer, although she's hampered by male officials anxious to prove themselves superior to a woman. Predictably, Scarpetta's toil pays off, but not before the strangler attacks her; a reformed male chauvinist, conveniently nearby, saves her. Although readers may be naturally disposed to admire Scarpetta and find the novel's scientific aspect interesting, they are likely to be put off by her self-aggrandizement and interminable complaints, annoying flaws in an otherwise promising debut.

It was really think how many people may have had it and where it might have been or where it might go from me.

It will be somewhere in the lobby, I had left it on a side table near the grand ballroom. I had put it on the coffee table near the coat check, but the employees kept putting it on their "decorative" bookcase, next to the coat check.

They were very thorough, as I had to remove it from the bookshelf and tried placing it on various tables around the lobby...only to find it back on the bookcase next to the coat check (usually center of the bottom shelf) only an hour later!
