DEPRAVED HEART by Patricia Cornwell - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Patricia Cornwell.
Dr. Kay Scarpetta is working a suspicious death scene in Cambridge,
Massachusetts when an emergency alert sounds on her phone. A video link
lands in her text messages and seems to be from her computer genius
niece Lucy. But how can it be? It’s clearly a surveillance film of Lucy
taken almost twenty years ago.
As Scarpetta watches she begins to
learn frightening secrets about her niece, whom she has loved and raised
like a daughter. That film clip and then others sent soon after raise
dangerous legal implications that increasingly isolate Scarpetta and
leave her confused, worried, and not knowing where to turn. She doesn’t
know whom she can tell—not her FBI husband Benton Wesley or her
investigative partner Pete Marino. Not even Lucy.
In this new
novel, Cornwell launches these unforgettable characters on an intensely
psychological odyssey that includes the mysterious death of a Hollywood
mogul’s daughter, aircraft wreckage on the bottom of the sea in the
Bermuda Triangle, a grisly gift left in the back of a crime scene truck,
and videos from the past that threaten to destroy Scarpetta’s entire
world and everyone she loves. The diabolical presence behind what
unfolds seems obvious—but strangely, not to the FBI. Certainly that’s
the message they send when they raid Lucy’s estate and begin building a
case that could send her to prison for the rest of her life.
the latest novel in her bestselling series featuring chief medical
examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta, Cornwell will captivate readers with the
shocking twists, high-wire tension, and cutting-edge forensic detail
that she is famous for, proving yet again why she’s the world’s #1
bestselling crime writer.
