Publisher Description

With unparalleled high-tension suspense and the latest in forensic technology, Patricia Cornwell once again proves her exceptional ability to surprise—and to thrill—in this electrifying Kay Scarpetta novel.

A body, oddly draped in an unusual cloth, has just been discovered inside the sheltered gates of MIT, and it’s suspected the identity is that of missing computer engineering grad student Gail Shipton, last seen the night before at a trendy Cambridge bar. It appears she’s been murdered, mere weeks before the trial in her $100 million lawsuit against her former financial manager, and Massachusetts Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta doubts it’s a coincidence. She also fears the case may have a connection with her computer genius niece, Lucy.

In Dust, Scarpetta and her colleagues are up against a force far more sinister than a sexual predator who fits the criminal classification of a “spectacle killer.” The murder of Gail Shipton soon leads deep into the dark world of designer drugs, drone technology, organized crime, and shocking corruption at the highest levels.

Confusing. Boring. Repetitive rehashing of past

I also couldn't be bothered to finish this book. Sorry I spent the money. My sense is that the quality of this series has been leaching out over the last few books. This one is disjointed, verbose and tiresome. Time to retire this series.


Couldn't finish it!

The author goes on and on and on about her dead husband, her investigator, her own feelings.
Very boring book. Very intense descriptions of thoughts and feelings, in the past, in the present, and on and on, that are full of annoying phrases and language. The book certainly doesn't get to the point. If you are looking for a good read, I suggest something else. I actually don't even give it one star.
