Book #49 was All That Remains, the 3rd book in Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta series. The back of the book reads:
A serial killer is loose in Richmond, specializing in attractive young couples whose bodies are invariably found in the woods months later â€” minus their shoes andsocks. Chief Medical Officer Dr Kay Scarpetta finds herself tracking a killer whoscrupulously eliminates every clue, rendering all her forensic skills useless. This time it’s her courage and intuition on the line in a race against time.
It’s interesting to read these early books in the series after reading a lot of the later ones. Fills in the blanks on some of the back story. Overall, this one was pretty good, though there was some stuff jumped over in the end, like Cornwell didn’t want to go over a certain number of pages, so she just refers to it instead of actually writing about it.
