I really can't stand the work of author Patricia Cornwell, or at least the Kay Scarpetta novels I have read so far. Scarpetta can't fight, so instead of coming off as a heroin, she comes off as a crabby, middle-aged woman. Even the romantic bits don't feel at all romantic for this reason. Also, a couple Scarpetta books I've read seem to have the same theme: sereal killers, swamps, death row, kidnapping of innocent women, etc.
