Publisher Description

The third book in the Kay Scarpetta series, from No. 1 bestselling author Patricia Cornwell.

'America's most chilling writer of crime fiction' The Times

A killer is stalking young lovers. Taking their lives . . . and leaving just one tantalising clue . . .

When the bodies of young courting couples start turning up in remote woodlands areas, Dr Kay Scarpetta's task as Chief Medical Examiner is made more difficult by the effects of the elements. Eight times she must write that the cause of death is undetermined.

But when the latest girl goes missing turns out to be the daughter of one of the most powerful women in America, Kay finds herself prey to political pressure and press harassment. As she starts to investigate, she finds that vital evidence is being withheld from her - or even faked. And all the time a cunning, sadistic killer is still at large . . .

I can't wait for the next book. Extraordinary detail and the suspense keeps you reading. I have got to know more about Kay. It has become a part of me. Thank you for what I don't get in movies.
