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.

Dr. Scarpetta has had a hard personal life and does an extremely difficult job, but, for those reasons, she is condescending, humorless, and, thus, difficult to like. Cornwell's narrative just plods along. I read to page 45 and just gave up; it was boring.

This author may have won numerous awards for her writing, but in my opinion, she is boring, with a capital B. This book is far from a "who done it ", not a page turner, has very little suspense. The most interesting character is a 10 year old girl...I'll try the next book in the Scarpetta series...I hope it is better.

A recommendation from a friend, and a good one! I really enjoyed it - mystery enough that it was possible to figure it out but not totally obvious.

Apparently, this is the first in her Kay Scarpetta series. Well-written, but predictable to an extent, if you're familiar with the genre. Still a good read.

I enjoy most of Cornwell's writing. This one was just so so. 5 or 10 for me.

The first in a series invoving Kay Scarpetta the medical examiner. The author won several prizes for this book: Edgar, Creasey, Anthony etc. and it is well worth a read.
