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 inside the cooler.
When the revolutionary 3D radiology scans reveal more shocking details about internal injuries unlike any Scarpetta has ever seen, Scarpetta 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...

Recited in such a grim expressionless monotone it's hard to tell if there's a worthwhile book in there.
First chapter sounded like a lot of acronyms and internal politics.
Couldn't take any more after that.
Yes, I would. I mostly tend to listen to the books I buy more than once since I often miss a lot first time round. Leave it for a few months and it's like a new book again.
The plot, like all Scarpetta novels, was great.
She reads very well and I like her entire rendition.
I remember most of them but mostly the bad guys seem to hang around in a person's memory.
If anything, it was too short. I love long books with interesting and cunning plots and lots of twists and turns.
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I enjoyed this book but sometimes the story did tend to woffle on about nothing. The narrator was good and so was the plot. If you like Patricia Cornwell you will really enjoy this book
