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.

From the Publisher
Annotation Forensics mastermind Dr. Kay Scarpetta gets called to NYC on a new case, and her nemesis is revealing itself slowly and mysteriously. A man locked in a psychiatric prison ward requests specifically to talk to Scarpetta--but can she trust his claims of innocence in a recent murder? More victims turn up, however, so she knows one thing for sure: she's dealing with an intelligent and fiendish foe. Dr. Scarpetta must use all her technical brilliance to solve these quickly entangling crimes. Just as Scarpetta finds herself drawn into these baffling events, readers will find themselves sucked into Patricia Cornwell's thriller.
First Line Brain tissue clung like wet, gray lint to the sleeves of Dr. Kay Scarpetta's surgical gown, and the front of it was splashed with blood.
