Publisher Description

The world's bestselling crime writer Patricia Cornwell presents the extraordinary eighteenth novel in the Kay Scarpetta series, in which Kay Scarpetta is confronted with a case that could ruin her professionally and personally.

Kay Scarpetta has been training at the Dover Port Mortuary, mastering the art of 'virtual autopsy' - a groundbreaking procedure that could soon revolutionise forensic science. And it is not too long before these new skills urgently need to be put into practice. A young man drops dead, apparently from a heart condition, eerily close to Scarpetta's home. But when his body is examined the next morning, there are stunning indications that he may have been alive when he was zipped inside a pouch and locked in the cooler.

When the revolutionary 3D radiology scans reveal more shocking details about internal injuries unlike any Scarpetta has ever seen, she realizes that this is a case of murder - and that she is fighting a cunning and uniquely cruel enemy. Now it is a race against time to discover who and why before more people die. But that time is running out . . .

Good mystery!

Confusing at first but captivating at the end!

Port Mortuary

Not the same level as the other Scarpeta novels. Wordier than necessary, lacks the element of mystery. To dark and moody, a real Scarpeta fan don't waste your time!

Plodding and difficult

I remember a time that I pre-ordered all of the Scarpetta books. Now I find them difficult to read. Kay feels sorry for herself and betrayed by everyone. The prose is disjointed and hard to follow. Wait for this one to get to the library because it isn't worth the money.
