Description

Under cover of night in Richmond, Virginia, a human monster strikes, leaving a gruesome trail of stranglings that has paralyzed the city. Medical examiner Kay Scarpetta suspects the worst: a deliberate campaign by a brilliant serial killer whose signature offers precious few clues. With an unerring eye, she calls on the latest advances in forensic research to unmask the madman. But this investigation will test Kay like no other, because it's being sabotaged from within and someone wants her dead.

    Quick easy read. Mostly entertaining. I found her red herrings a little two red and obvious for me to have considered them seriously. The forensics were well done and interesting and the major characters were fairly well drawn. Overall a good forensic mystery that requires some thinking, but not overly taxing.
  • Pretty boring

    I really don't understand the five star reviews. I've now read a quarter of the book and it is boring me to death. There are to many useless details given and the bla bla about the computer stuff is just a pathetic attempt to be interesting. I don't think I will even finish reading this book, and that has never happened before.

    I have read every book in the Scarpetta series. This book was my first, and by far, my favorite! - It made me want to double check my windows and doors at night before going to bed!
