From the Publisher:
As she investigates the murder of her former deputy chief, Kay Scarpetta finds links to a series of otherwise unrelated killings, and soon finds herself unraveling a global terror conspiracy. (suspense). By the author of Port Mortuary. Simultaneous.
Annotation:
Freelance forensic scientist Dr. Kay Scarpetta investigates the murder of a colleague, the unsolved slaying of a family, as well as a string of brutal killings that seem to have their origin, or at least a point of connection, around an inmate in the Georgia Prison for Women. A convicted sex-offender, this woman is also the mother of an elusive killer. Scarpetta's investigation uncovers the links between these crimes, while also revealing a conspiracy much more widespread and dangerous than even this experienced investigator initially imagined. Bestselling author Patricia Cornwell injects her novel with as much gruesome violence as one of her villains injects Botox into victims. Full of examples of creatively brutal acts like this one committed by women, this 19th novel in the Scarpetta series carries the message that women can be the heroes as well as the evildoers.
Author Bio
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

"As in other recent work, Cornwell overloads the plot, but Scarpetta's tangled emotional state and her top-notch forensic knowledge more than compensate." 11/17/2011

"The prison scenes are convincingly chilling, and the Southern characters bring out Cornwell's rarely exercised sense of humor." - Marilyn Stasio 12/18/2011

"When Scarpetta finally pulls together the strands of this case, she reaches a surprising conclusion that will give readers pause about their own safety." - Gerald Bartell 12/29/2011
