The first book in the Kay Scarpetta series, from No. 1 bestselling author Patricia Cornwell.
'America's most chilling writer of crime fiction' The Times
A serial killer is on the loose in Richmond, Virginia. Three women have died, brutalised and strangled in their own bedroom. There is no pattern: the killer appears to strike at random - but always early on Saturday mornings.
So when Dr Kay Scarpetta, chief medical officer, is awakened at 2.33 am, she knows the news is bad: there is a fourth victim. And she fears now for those that will follow unless she can dig up new forensic evidence to aid the police.
But not everyone is pleased to see a woman in this powerful job. Someone may even want to ruin her career and reputation . . .
Praise for the groundbreaking series:
'One of the best crime writers writing today ' Guardian
' Devilishly clever ' Sunday Times
' The top gun in this field ' Daily Telegraph
' Forget the pretenders. Cornwell reigns ' Mirror
' The Agatha Christie of the DNA age ' Express
