A reclusive author, Beryl Madison finds no safe haven from months of menacing phone calls - or the tormented feeling that her every move is being watched. When the writer is found slain in her own home, Kay Scarpetta pieces together the intricate forensic evidence - while unwittingly edging closer to a killer waiting in the shadows.
"Takes the reader into the fascinating world of the forensic crime lab ... a complex, multi-layered novel with enough twists and turns for two books." (
The Washington Post Book World)
"Cornwell has the milieu and the facts down cold ... a complex story that wends a devious path through dark spaces where corpses are discovered at practically every turn." ( The Los Angeles Daily News)
