Depraved Heart by Patricia Cornwell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I have to wonder - did Cornwell read Gone Girl before writing this book? Because the vibe I'm getting from the dreadfully detestable antagonist of this book is that she fancies herself the next Amazing Amy. She's not quite as loathsome as Gillian Flynn's creation, but she comes very close to it. Maybe it's because Carrie dishes out a little more physical abuse than Amy does, as opposed to working largely on the psychological-abuse front. Still, I hated her, so I think Cornwell got that right, at least. It's definitely her most memorable book in a while for it, that's for sure.
