About this item


About the Book

A psychopath with an intimate knowledge of death has an even more intimate knowledge of Kay Scarpetta--and many different plans to kill her. This classic #1 "New York Times" bestseller now includes a new Introduction by the author. Reissue.

Book Synopsis

Kay Scarpetta finds herself pitted against a possible bioterrorist in this suspense-filled read from #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell.

When a woman turns up dismembered in a landfill, Scarpetta initially suspects the work of a serial killer she's been tracking. But her investigation turns far more dangerous when she realizes the victim's skin is covered in an unusual rash--and Scarpetta herself may have just been exposed to a deadly virus.
