A New York Times Bestseller
The world's number-one-bestselling crime writer is back with another scorching thriller featuring medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta.
Kay Scarpetta steps over the threshold of a new life after her work as Virginia's Chief Medical Examiner comes to a jarring end. She's settling into a career as a private forensic consultant in Florida, deep into a case that left her colleagues in Louisiana profoundly disturbed. Then she receives chilling news: From his cell on death row, Jean-Baptiste Chandonne - the vicious and unrepentant Wolfman, who pursued her to her very doorstep - has asked to see her. Only to the legendary Dr. Scarpetta will he tell his secrets: the evidence that will bring a global investigation to a swift conclusion. Now she must unravel a twisting conspiracy with an international reach . . . and confront the shock of her life.

Patricia Cornwell sold her first novel, Postmortem, while working as a computer analyst at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond, Virginia. It is the only novel to win five major crime awards in a single year. She has since gone on to become a #1 New York Times bestselling author, with some of her more recent bestsellers including The Bone Bed, Red Mist, Port Mortuary, and Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper - Case Closed. To date, Cornwell's books have sold more than 100 million copies in thirty-six languages in over 120 countries. Her character Dr. Kay Scarpetta won the 1999 Sherlock Award for the best detective created by an American author. When not writing from her home in Boston, Cornwell tirelessly researches cutting-edge forensic technologies to include in her work.
This entry in Cornwell's long-running series cedes Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta's spotlight role to her fiery crime-busting niece, Lucy, and Marino, the opinionated Richmond detective. Kate Reading's low, comfortable voice and good impersonations are a perfect fit for Cornwell's wild plot twists and calculating psychopaths. Reading convincingly renders each of the characters, male and female, sane and insane, with an appropriate frisson of fear. Listeners will find themselves compelled to hear the gruesome details even when repelled by the Hannibal Lecter-like Jean-Baptiste or his even scarier handsome twin, Talley. Dedicated fans may be disappointed, but Scarpetta is still changing and growing. S.C.A. 2004 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
