Publisher's Summary

A reclusive author, Beryl Madison finds no safe haven from months of menacing phone calls - or the tormented feeling that her every move is being watched. When the writer is found slain in her own home, Kay Scarpetta pieces together the intricate forensic evidence - while unwittingly edging closer to a killer waiting in the shadows.

Critic Reviews

"Takes the reader into the fascinating world of the forensic crime lab ... a complex, multi-layered novel with enough twists and turns for two books." ( The Washington Post Book World)
"Cornwell has the milieu and the facts down cold ... a complex story that wends a devious path through dark spaces where corpses are discovered at practically every turn." ( The Los Angeles Daily News)

Great Series.

I found the narrators voice a little odd at first but I gradually loved it.

Love the book, but hate the narrator

I'm extremely disappointed Lorelei King's narrative performance is awful. Total waste of a credit. I would have to liken her voice to nails on chalkboard, the worst narrator I have heard on Audible to date.

Couldn't stop listening.

As before, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and very much appreciated the skills of the actor reading it.

A great crime novel

Cornwell is a cracking crime writer and her stories are pretty addictive. Sometimes the dialogue is a bit cliched but the story and character development makes up for it. Her deep knowledge of forensics and pathology really set her apart. Lorelei King does a fantastic job with the narration too.
