Publisher's Summary

Under cover of night in Richmond, Virginia, a human monster strikes, leaving a gruesome trail of stranglings that has paralysed the city. Medical examiner Kay Scarpetta suspects the worst: a deliberate campaign by a brilliant serial killer whose signature offers precious few clues. With an unerring eye, she calls on the latest advances in forensic research to unmask the madman. But this investigation will test Kay like no other, because it’s being sabotaged from within - and someone wants her dead.

    "Won't bother again"

    I can't understand how Patricia Cornwall has achieved such success. Nothing gripped me in this novel suffice to say I can't even recall most of it.
    A different narrator may have improved things a tad as I found Lorelei's monotone drawl nothing short of irritating.

    "OK but not much of a plot."

    I am amazed this series went on to sell millions. It is full of cardboard characters and has a tissue thin plot line.

    "Very good"

    Had to stick with it for the first hour or so! Very glad I did. Very good story. Excellent narrator.
    I'm looking forward to the next in the series. I could be hooked on these!

    "intriguing murder story"

    This is the first time I've read Patricia Cornwell and I plan to read more. A bit remeniscent if some if the Bones books and some of the writing is 'of its time', but it kept me gripped until the end. Lorelei King is great narrator.

    Suspense up until the end and the narrator changes voices for every single character, she is impressive!
