Publisher's Summary

Leaving behind her forensic pathology practice in South Carolina, Kay Scarpetta takes up an assignment in New York City, where the NYPD has asked her to examine an injured patient in a psychiatric ward. The handcuffed and chained patient, Oscar Bane, has specifically asked for her, and he begins to talk. He says his injuries were sustained in the course of a murder... that he did not commit. Is Bane a criminally insane stalker who has fixed on Scarpetta? Or is his paranoid tale true, and it is he who is being spied on, followed and stalked by the actual killer? The only thing Scarpetta knows for certain is that a woman has been tortured and murdered - and that more violent deaths will follow.

so hard to keep interested

Really slow and hard to keep interested and I have really tried. Up to chapter 9 and nothing interesting has happened at all

good if you are familiar with earlier books

I really liked this book, and have enjoyed the others. this one does make a lot of reference to happenings in previous books, particularly the one before. I like the psychological aspects to it, and the examination of the characters, their actions, relationships and motivations. For me it makes it more interesting but if you are just looking for a crime novel, and haven't read or listened to the previous books, you may be disappointed.
