Another thrilling novel from the bestselling author of Postmortem and Black Notice After months of menacing phone calls and feeling that her every move is being watched, successful writer Beryl Madison flees Key West when a terrifying message is scratched on her car. But the very night she returns to Richmond, she deactivates her burglar alarm and opens her door to someone who nearly decapitates her. Why did she let him in, wonders Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta? And, why is Beryl's latest manuscript missing? Persuing the answers involves Scarpetta in the murder of another writer's jealous mentor. While she copes with a variety of personal and professional problems, Scarpetta's high-tech forensic skills enable her to collect a body of evidence that would mean little without her intelligence, compassion, and imagination leads her directly into a nightmare all her own.

A boring ordeal. Lots of pieces parts in the mystery but never coming together in a satisfying manner. This was the first in her series. I hope her later books are more compelling.

Was disappointed with this book compared to the others that I have read by Patricia Cornwell. The book is well written and keeps you reading to find out who the killer is.

Suspenseful and fast moving, Patricia keeps the reader guessing. The twists and turns of the plot keep coming until you and the character finally figure out "who done it" then the race to catch the bad guy.
