“Five years after being sacked as Chief Medical Examiner Dr Kay Scarpetta returns to Richmond, Virginia, and she is back with a vengeance. A vengeance not of her own making.
Her return, as consultant pathologist in the mysterious death of a teenage girl ruffles a few feathers – her own included. Yet Gilly Paulsson’s death has stumped the best in the business. There is not obvious cause, nothing suspicious except for the fact that Gilly shouldn’t be dead. The case has also stumped Dr Joel Marcus, the new Chief Medical Examiner – who is not the best in the business. Scarpetta knows as much. Pete Marino, accompanying her, says as much. And soon there’s’ evidence to prove it – trace evidence uncovered by Scarpetta. Gilly Paulsson was murdered But why?.”
