Publisher's Summary

A serial killer is on the loose in Richmond, Virginia. Three women have died, brutalised and strangled in their own bedrooms. There is no pattern: the killer appears to strike at random, but always early on Saturday mornings. So when Dr Kay Scarpetta, chief medical officer, is awakened at 2.33 am, she knows the news is bad: there is a fourth victim. And she fears now for those that will follow unless she can dig up new forensic evidence to aid the police. But not everyone is pleased to see a woman in this powerful job. Someone may even want to ruin her career and reputation.


What the Critics Say

"Devilishly clever." (Sunday Times)

An unabridged version would probably be better

The story is interesting and the reading enganging. However, the abridged version leaves something to be desired. I missed the details, the descriptions that would probably be in an unabridged version. Non the less I devoured it, like I do any mistery book.

My first audible book

Have read some other reviews and think they are rather harsh. It's a great storyline and builds a picture of the main characters very well. The narrator does a good job in building the atmosphere. Will certainly listen to more
