About this item
This addition to the bestselling forensic thriller series finds Dr. Kay Scarpetta at the National Forensic Academy in Hollywood, Florida, consulting on the PREDATOR project, which uses Functional MRI scans in an effort to determine if and how the brains of serial killers differ from those less murderously inclined. But soon Dr. Scarpetta's interest in the homicidal mind becomes less than academic when a pay-phone call traced to Boston not only claims responsibility for a Florida death previously judged a suicide, but also threatens the life of Scarpetta's niece, Lucy.
Investigating the disappearance of two sisters in Florida, Dr. Kay Scarpetta follows clues that twist and turn, leading her into the psychopathic depths of a jailed serial killer's mind.
