Author Info
Patricia 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.

Praise
"[T]he real heart of this thriller lies in the insights it gives us into the character of its heroine....PORT MORTUARY is a worthy addition to the Scarpetta canon. It's less about the chase than about why the chase is happening at all, and proves that Cornwell's not running out of ideas for her...forensic pathologist, who--thankfully--is showing no signs just yet of retiring."
From the Publisher
Annotation Suspense mistress, Patricia Cornwell delivers another ripping Kay Scarpetta novel, as the forensic scientist contends with one of the toughest, most complicated cases of her storied career. One of the first cases Scarpetta handled reemerges, while high-tech innovations present new on-the-job challenges. And then a body turns up with the most bizarre symptoms Scarpetta has ever seen. She's up against a mean and cunning enemy this time, for sure. Cornwell shows no signs of slowing down in with PORT MORTUARY, her 18th Scarpetta installment.
Editors Note As the chief of the Cambridge Forensic Center, Kay Scarpetta is confronted with a case that could shut down her new facility and ruin her personal and professional life. (suspense). By the #1 best-selling author of The Scarpetta Factor. A best-selling novel.
