    The Complete Patricia Cornwell Companion

    If you are a Patricia Cornwell fan, this book is a must read and a book to keep in your permanent library. The book first offers insights into the author herself, Patricia Cornwell. It then goes on to in-depth information about all the main characters Cornwell has written about. The information in this book is astounding and so helpful. Even though the book includes the Andy Brazil series, which I am not a fan of, it is a necessary companion if you are a Kay Scarpetta fan. You'll not only find information about the books themselves, but you get a whole lot of information about Kay, herself. Her schooling, personal life, etc. It even includes a "statistical analysis" of the crimes committed in Cornwell's books -- victim, perpetrator, what weapon, why the crime was committed, and what book you can find it in. Amazing stuff. Keep in mind, this book was written in 2005, so all of Cornwell's books after that year will not be found. Hopefully, there will be an updated version soon.
