Patricia Cornwell – Dust

Dust is Patricia Cornwell’s twenty first novel featuring Kay Scarpetta, who, like the author,  has migrated from Richmond to Washington and now Cambridge, Massachusetts. In our interview, Cornwell reveals plans for a new ABC TV series with a new character, a female New Jersey detective with an interesting past. She talks about authenticity in her portrayal of a medical examiner and how geographical details become almost a character in her writing. She explains where she feels comfortable stretching reality and where she feels obligated to strictly adhere to fact.
