Publisher Description

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


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


A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over two thousand miles away in Boston. She has no idea why.

But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect the paleontologist's disappearance is connected to a series of crimes much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.

When she turns to those around her, Scarpetta finds that the danger and suspicion have penetrated even her closest circles. Her niece Lucy speaks in riddles. Her lead investigator Pete Marino and FBI husband Benton Wesley have secrets of their own. Feeling alone and betrayed, Scarpetta is tempted by someone from her past as she tracks a killer both cunning and cruel.

The Bone Bed

iTunes, you need to get with the times. This book is $22.99 online yet I can buy the actual, physical book in Kmart for less than $20. Ebooks are convenient but not when they are more expensive than the real thing - especially as with the real thing, there is nothing stopping me from reading it and them lending it to friends, whereas ebooks are still DRM and not "lendable".

The bone bed

Praise for Patricia Cornwell, she has done it again, loved the book there is always a twist, I have read and lived through every book. Lucy and marino are wonderful caractures, Benton is great and his love for Kay is never ending, can't wait until the next book.

The Bone Bed

I agree with the previous comment regarding the cost. I was shocked when I saw the price, but chose to download it anyway as I had been waiting to read it (I have read everything that Patricia Cornwell has published in English - to my knowledge!). For paying more than $20 for this e-book I was disappointed in the punctuation errors as, for me, they disrupted the flow when I was reading. All in all I enjoyed the overall plot, however the ending felt a bit rushed and I was left feeling disappointed. I suppose expectations are high when you have been waiting for a favourite authors next book! If you are a fan, and want to keep up with the lives of some much-loved characters, you will most likely enjoy it.
