    It's New Year's Eve, the final night of Virginia's bloodiest year since the Civil War, and another poor soul has turned up dead. Ted Eddings, a scuba diver and investigative reporter who was a favorite at the medical examiner's office, is found 30 feet below the Elizabeth River's icy surface. Kay Scarpetta, chief medical examiner for the state of Virginia, can't help but wonder why she received a phone call from someone reporting the death before the police were notified.

    Ein Serienkiller treibt in Richmond, Virginia, sein Unwesen. Drei Frauen wurden bisher brutal ermordet - und die einzige Spur für Dr. Kay Scarpetta sind fluoreszierende Partikel auf den Leichen. Als hätte sie nicht schon genug Ärger, machen Scarpettas Kollegen keinen Hehl daraus, dass sie von einer Frau als Leiterin der Gerichtsmedizin nicht viel halten. Doch Kay Scarpetta lässt sich nicht beirren. Sie setzt alles daran, den erbarmungslosen Killer zu überführen - und begibt sich dabei in allergrößte Gefahr.

    In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she enlisted in the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt and found herself ensnared in a gruesome case of what seemed to be vicious, racially motivated hate crimes against two Americans in South Africa.

    In Trace, Kay Scarpetta travels to Richmond, Virginia, at the odd behest of the recently appointed Chief Medical Examiner, who claims that he needs her help to solve a perplexing crime. When she arrives, however, Scarpetta finds that nothing is as she expected: her former lab is in the final stages of demolition; the inept chief isn't the one who requested her after all; her old assistant chief has developed personal problems that he won't reveal; and a glamorous FBI agent meddles with the case.
