Four young women have been found murdered—tortured and strangled in their own beds—all victims of the same brilliant monster. Using a skilled hand and the latest technology in forensic medicine, Kay Scarpetta begins the process of gathering the microscopic clues the latest battered body has to give.

I have always loved reading Patricia Cornwell books. it's been awhile so now I'm listening to them with my husband. their still great.
Skipping, blipping in the recording. Is the author always this racist and homophobic? Hideous homophobia laces this book, I don't recommend it at all.
Good plot but slow to progress. If not for the interesting plot, I might not have finished it. Narrator does good with characters and voices. Climax of story ending felt rushed. Once it peaked, it was over in just a few minutes.
I read the book when it was new and loved it. They story is good, but the time reference is abundantly clear. WOW! How things have changed from the early 90s!!!
Many have posted a poor review of C.J. Critt however I find her voice to be very reminiscent of early Hollywood actresses like Lauren Bacall.
Once recognizing that style I found her performance to be very nice.
Fake southern accents impeded enjoyment of content. Would enjoy the reader if characters were read "straight" with Standard American accents and interpretation was minimized. Wesley, Moreno, Wingo are beloved characters who need the listener to interpret them.
