Author Info
Patricia Daniels Cornwell
Patricia Cornwell is no stranger to the morgue. In researching her often violent suspense novels, she ensures authenticity in her work by frequently accompanying medical examiners as they perform autopsies. Also contributing to the accuracy of her novels is her experience working as a crime reporter, and as a records auditor in the Richmond, Virginia medical examiner's office. Cornwell exploded onto the mystery scene in 1990 with "Post Mortem", one of the most critically acclaimed debuts ever, and the first novel to win an Edgar Award, Anthony Award, Macavity Award and the John Creasey Award all in one year. Cornwell's initial inspiration to write came from her close neighbor and friend, Ruth Bell Graham, the wife of evangelist Billy Graham. Cornwell's first book, a biography of Graham, was published in 1983. Ironically the book caused a rift in their relationship, but Cornwell followed it with a series of mysteries that would make her famous and wildly successful.
"Full marks, as always, for the gripping forensic detail and beleaguered Scarpetta's legendary toughness."
"Dr. Scarpetta herself continues to fascinate, with a sensibility in which clinical objectivity and human concerns coexist convincingly."
"...Cornwell demonstrates anew why her legions of fans include those who normally shun murder mysteries and thrillers: She is a meticulous researcher and a talented writer with an unerring eye for detail."
"As usual in Patricia Cornwell's novels, the plot of `Cause of Death' is strong and the research impressive. Scarpetta is a remarkable character."
From the Publisher
Annotation When an investigative reporter dies during a nighttime dive at the old Naval shipyard in Norfolk, Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta discovers that in addition to carrying guns and ammunition, he was the victim of foul play. The death opens a door to a network of evil whose scope Dr. Scarpetta never could have imagined.
