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.

Huge fan but disappointed this time.

I've read & listened to many Kay Scarpetta's but did not take to this busy story line which I found hard to follow. The South African accent also really through me. Not being a South African, but I found it hard to digest.

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.
