The world''s #1 bestselling crime writer sends chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta on a quest to discover what happened to her murdered deputy chief. And what she finds in Savannah, Georgia, is only the beginning of something far more destructive. Available in a tall Premium Edition.
From the Publisher:
With high-tension suspense and cutting-edge technology, Patricia Cornwell?the world?s #1 bestselling crime writer?once again proves her exceptional ability to entertain and enthrall in this remarkable novel featuring chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta.

On her quest to find out exactly what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months before, Scarpetta drives to the Georgia Prison for Women to meet a convicted sex offender and the mother of a vicious and diabolically brilliant killer. Against the advice of her FBI criminal intelligence agent husband, Benton Wesley, Scarpetta is determined to hear this woman out.

Scarpetta has both personal and professional reasons to learn more about a string of grisly killings: the murder of a Savannah family years earlier, a young woman on death row, and then other inexplicable deaths that begin to occur at a breathtaking pace. Driven by inner forces, Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding?s death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning of something far more destructive: a terrifying terrain of conspiracy and potential terrorism on an international scale.

And she is the only one who can stop it.
As she investigates the murder of her former deputy chief, Kay Scarpetta discovers links to a series of otherwise unrelated killings, and soon finds herself unraveling a global terror conspiracy.
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
