Kay Scarpetta has been training at the Dover Port Mortuary, mastering the art of "virtual autopsy" – a revolutionary new procedure. And it is not too long before these new skills urgently need to be put into practice. A young man drops dead, apparently from a heart condition. But when his body is examined the next morning, there are indications that he may have been alive when he was locked inside the cooler. When the revolutionary 3D radiology scans reveal more shocking details about internal injuries unlike any Scarpetta has ever seen, Scarpetta realizes that this is a case of murder – and that she is fighting a uniquely cruel enemy. Now it is a race against time to discover who and why before more people die...

About the Author:

Patricia Cornwell's most recent bestsellers include Red Mist, Port Mortuary, and Portrait of a Killer: Jack the RipperCase Closed. Her earlier works include Postmortemthe only novel to win five major crime awards in a single yearand Cruel and Unusual, which won Britains prestigious Gold Dagger Award for the best crime novel of 1993. Dr. Kay Scarpetta herself won the 1999 Sherlock Award for the best detective created by an American author.

From AudioFile:

n this latest installment in the Scarpetta series, Dr. Kay Scarpetta, noted forensic pathologist, is now director of the Cambridge Forensic Center in Massachusetts. While she's been away at Dover Air Force Base on a six-month assignment, things have gone very wrong at the CFC; the bodies are piling up; her second in command, Jack Fielding, has gone missing; and Kay may be the next target. This dark, brooding story, told in primarily the first person, is mired in detail that lends little and irritates much. Kate Burton's delivery is often rushed. Her credible variation of accents lends interest but cannot overcome the listener's weariness in the face of so much introspection and useless melodrama. Not Cornwell's best effort. A.C.P.
