|Plot Summary of The Unofficial Patricia Cornwell Companion|
St. Martin's, Oct 2002, 17.95, 320 pp.
Anyone interested in the life and works of Patricia Cornwell will definitely want to buy and immediately read THE UNOFFICIAL PATRICIA CORNWELL COMPANION. The first section is a mini-biography on the author, highlighting the high points of her life. Two interesting sub-sections are “The Quotable Patricia Cornwell” and a reprint of an interview with the author.
Section II looks at the works of Patricia Cornwell with reviews of each book stating what the critical thought about each novel is. This is a treasure chest of information and shows that the author went two steps beyond a mini-synopsis to give the audience a feel for each novel. If there is one criticism of this novel, it is that there is no interview with the author specifically intended for this autobiography.
