Publisher's Summary

New Year's Eve, and the final murder scene of Virginia's bloodiest year takes Scarpetta 30 feet below the Elizabeth River's icy surface. A diver is dead.
Ted Eddings, an investigative reporter who was a favourite at the Medical Examiner's office. Was Eddings probing the frigid depths for a story or simply diving for sunken trinkets? And why did Scarpetta receive a phone call reporting the death before the police were notified?

Kay was a bit flat

Enjoyable however lacking in the storyline I prefer more drama and more time in the morgue. Cornwall has definitely written better.
