Summary:

In this relaunch of the electrifying, landmark #1 bestselling thriller series, chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta hunts those responsible for two wildly divergent and chilling murders. 

Forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta has come almost full circle, returning to Virginia as the chief medical examiner, the state where she launched her storied career. Finding herself the new girl in town once again after being away for many years, she’s inherited not only an overbearing secretary, but also a legacy of neglect and potential corruption.

She and her husband Benton Wesley, now a forensic psychologist with the U.S. Secret Service, have relocated to Old Town Alexandria where she’s headquartered five miles from the Pentagon in a post-pandemic world that’s been torn by civil and political unrest. Just weeks on the job, she’s called to a scene by railroad tracks where a woman’s body has been shockingly displayed, her throat cut down to the spine, and as Scarpetta begins to follow the trail, it leads unnervingly close to her own historic neighborhood.

At the same time, a catastrophe occurs in a top-secret laboratory in outer space, endangering at least two scientists aboard. Appointed to the highly classified Doomsday Commission that specializes in sensitive national security cases, Scarpetta is summoned to the White House and tasked with finding out exactly what happened. But even as she works the first potential crime scene in space remotely, an apparent serial killer strikes again very close to home.

    Worst read book I have heard so far. Do not like the book either and maybe that is because of the reader. And I usually love Patricia Cornwell, have read almost all of her books.

  • Rhonda G.

    A Scarpetta fan for years, I found this one quite difficult to relate to, and then boom, the killer was found. Odd.

  • Connie S.

    I couldn’t get past chapter 2 due to the narrator. The cadence was way too slow and I got incredibly frustrated just listening to her drag out. each. word. Love Patricia Cornwell’s books so I’ll probably pick up the printed book instead.

  • Jack B.

    Remember now why I quit reading her novels years ago. Slow pace, too much angst and drama. No real story here just a vehicle to get her back in Virginia.

  • Sherrill H.

    Listened to many throughout years. Too many political views in this book. Forced my self to finish

  • Anonymous

    I just couldn't get into this the reading was mind numbing.
