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
"I love it when Patricia Cornwall talks dirty, which she does a lot in PREDATOR."
From the Publisher
Annotation This addition to the bestselling forensic thriller series finds Dr. Kay Scarpetta at the National Forensic Academy in Hollywood, Florida, consulting on the PREDATOR project, which uses Functional MRI scans in an effort to determine if and how the brains of serial killers differ from those less murderously inclined. But soon Dr. Scarpetta's interest in the homicidal mind becomes less than academic when a pay-phone call traced to Boston not only claims responsibility for a Florida death previously judged a suicide, but also threatens the life of Scarpetta's niece, Lucy.
Editors Note Investigating the disappearance of two sisters in Florida, Dr. Kay Scarpetta follows clues that twist and turn, leading her into the psychopathic depths of a jailed serial killer's mind.
