Patricia Cornwell, 54, has been living in my neck of the woods, Boston. Here’s a report on some real estate she recently purchased. To be honest, I’ve never read a novel by Cornwell, but I know she’s a super-popular crime writer. I have, however, read Cornwell’s nonfiction book, Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper Case Closed, in which she solves the mystery of Jack the Ripper. I thought she nailed it. Anyway, I hope I run into her someday in Beantown.
