Medical examiner Kay Scarpetta suspects the worst: a deliberate campaign by a brilliant serial killer whose signature offers precious few clues.

But this investigation will test Kay like no other, because it's being sabotaged from within and someone wants her dead.
Rating: 5 StarsReview:  A great book, filled with mystery and suspense. Patricia Cornwell deserves her title of America's best crime fiction writer at the lest- her crime novels are amazing, and it's never east to guess the suspects- frustration is key, and Kay Scarpetta, Chief Medical Examiner is a model of that. An amazing novel, mysterious and intriguing. No one writes better crime fiction than Patricia Cornwell.
