The terrifying new Kay Scarpetta novel from America’s number one bestselling crime writer proves once again that Patricia Cornwell is peerless in her ability to enthrall and unnerve us!
Dr. Kay Scarpetta has her hands full working as the National Forensic Academy’s director of forensic science and as consulting pathologist at the Broward County, Florida, Medical Examiner’s Office. And her lover, forensic pathologist Benton Wesley, is far away in Boston working on a study called PREDATOR, an attempt to discover if a compulsive murderer’s brain works differently than that of a normal person. Benton’s latest subject is a sadistic killer named Basil Jenrette, a former cop who brags that he got away with murder in Kay’s neck of the woods.
At first, Kay doesn’t think too much about it—she’s busy trying to find out what happened to an entire family who has simply vanished. Then the body of a young woman with red painted handprints on her body is found in the woods of Boston…and evidence points to a connection with the missing family. Now, Kay’s entangled in a case that’s as unnerving as any she’s ever faced. The teasing psychological clues and bizarre forensic evidence lead Scarpetta and her team—Pete Marino, Benton and her niece Lucy Farinelli—to suspect that they’re hunting someone with an extremely cunning and malevolent mind whose secrets have kept him in the shadows…until now.
