Publisher's Summary

A "one-off" from the best-selling creator of the Dr. Kay Scarpetta series, based on the serialisation in the New York Times.

Moving between the chill of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the sultry humidity of Knoxville, Tennessee, Winston Garano, a police investigator, is instructed to look into a 20-year-old murder case. Although Win reckons there are many more pressing current cases which should have higher priority, he gets on with the task, unaware of the can of worms he will prise open.

With her hallmark qualities of deft characterisation, perfect research, and tense story-telling, Patricia Cornwell has created a novel which entertains, intrigues, and satisfies.

"Cornwell's books run on high octane fuel, a cocktail of adrenalin and fear." (The Times)

Yuk!

I'm an avid reader of Patricia Cornwell but, this book was dull, dull, dull. The write up says 'unabridged' but the story is so short and disjointed I find it difficult to believe this is not abridged. A very disappointing waste of subscription.

I've always loved every book written by Patricia Cornwell, but this new series is so disjointed it was very hard to follow.

Has At Risk put you off other books in this genre?

This series, yes!

What didn’t you like about Kate Reading’s performance?

Monotonous
