47. I’m a Patricia Cornwell fan.
I have been since sophomore year of high school. I found out about her thorough her book “Portrait of a Killer: Jack The Ripper - Case Closed”. Her theory of a painter being the infamous killer was a new view for me but not one of my favorites. Many Ripperologist(yes, an actual word for those who study the case) trash talked her and mocked. I really liked the book because it had the pictures of the victims that I could actually have with me. From there, the next time I saw Cornwell’s name was at a school booksale for Relay For Life. The book was “Blow Fly” and it was loosely based (dun dun!) the Louisiana serial killer, Derrick Todd Lee & by “loosely” I mean it was set in Louisiana with a character actually being from my hometown, Zachary. I loved the book and tried get and read all of Cornwell’s “Scarpetta” series(she has another series that I haven’t read with a court reporter and a Win DeGrano series). I own 9 of her books but I’ve read 12 of the
16 19 in the Scarpetta series. The 18th one just came out and I will find a way to get it.
