Publisher's Summary

Florida is full of predators, from the animals who thrive in its heat to the humans who stalk the malls, and they all give Dr. Kay Scarpetta, a forensics specialist, the opportunity and the means to do what she does best: persuading the dead to speak to her.

Critic Reviews

"It's not often a crime novel offers such a smorgasbord of oddball elements, including autopsy advice, methods of combating tree blight, the use of spiders in sadomasochist torture and couples covering the sexual and psychological waterfronts." (Publishers Weekly)

Predator is awful

I am very sorry I ever downloaded this book. The writing style is very weird, the characters act like children - actually worse. The profanity is unbelievable. I really wasted my money. I wonder how this book got printed in the first place.

Brilliant as Always.

Patricia Cornwell's novels never fail to completely engage. Lorelei King delivers a perfect reading. highly recommend to fans of crime fiction. The whole Scarpetta series is a fantastic journey.
