Book Description


See all titles by Patricia Cornwell.

Scarpetta is back! In this twenty-fifth in the electrifying, landmark #1 bestselling thriller series chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta hunts an ingenious killer who has mastered cutting-edge science for the most nefarious ends.

Forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta has returned to Virginia as the chief medical examiner. Finding herself the new girl in town once again after being away for many years, she’s inherited an overbearing secretary and a legacy of neglect and possible corruption.

She and her husband Benton Wesley, now a forensic psychologist with the U.S. Secret Service, have relocated to Old Town Alexandria where she’s headquartered five miles from the Pentagon in a post-pandemic world that’s been torn by civil and political unrest. Just weeks on the job, she’s called to a scene by railroad tracks where a woman’s body has been shockingly displayed, her throat cut down to the spine, and as Scarpetta begins to follow the trail, it leads unnervingly close to her own historic neighborhood.

At the same time a catastrophe occurs on a top secret private laboratory in outer space, and at least two scientists aboard are found dead. Appointed to the highly classified Doomsday Commission that specializes in sensitive national security cases, Scarpetta is summoned to the White House Situation Room to work the case remotely, dispatching astronauts from the International Space Station to deal with the scene and the bodies. She works the first crime scene in space as an apparent serial killer strikes again, this time even closer to home. Almost literally in her own back yard.

In this latest novel in her groundbreaking Kay Scarpetta series, Patricia Cornwell captivates readers with the shocking twists, high-wire tension, and forensic detail that she is famous for, proving once again why she’s the world’s #1 bestselling crime writer.

5 of 5 My addiction January 3, 2022
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Summerville, SC United States  
I collected my first signed book while I was still in college. Louis Untermeyer had spoken at Winthrop College. Clutching my program, I asked for an autograph. He graciously explained that, by agreement with his publisher, he was only allowed to sign his books. As quickly as I could run, I went to my room and back carrying my treasure with me. As Untermeyer signed my more than 15-year old copy of the "Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam" he said, as if greeting on old friend, "I haven't seen this in years." I made a writer very happy that night as well as myself. My personal signed library includes Frank B. Gilbreth, first edition, "Cheaper by the Dozen" and the complete works in fiction of Patricia Cornwell (thanks to VJ Books). As long as VJ Books exists, I will continue to collect.
