The post mortem reveals that the woman was stabbed before the fire was started, but while Scarpetta and her colleagues are puzzling over means and motive, they are called out to the scene of another fire and another murder. The pattern is the same, the answers as elusive, and then Benton disappears while following up a tip-off.
With appalling clarity, Scarpetta sees that Carrie has set up a scenario in which she can manipulate them all - and in which she appears to have the lethal upper hand.
"The pathology is fascinating, as is the sinister atmosphere generated by Cornwell's cruel prose." ( Harpers and Queen)

Point of Origin: Kay Scarpetta, Book 9
I have most of these books on CD and thoroughly enjoy them all. They keep you rivetted from the opening lines. I don't always get the baddy from the beginning, which makes it more interesting for me.
