Part of the Kay Scarpetta, Chief Medical Examiner of VA, series. Several of the CSI episodes on TV are based on this series. I say, start at the beginning... check patriciacornwell.com for a list of all the books in the series.

Reading the other reviews I have to laugh. For me this is the first book I can point to where I start saying the series went downhill, and fast! Really didn't like the books.

Good book but I also have to agree with "daedelys's" review and comments! A lot of that stuff drove me nuts too! I always feel the author should KNOW her story and her characters well and not confuse the reader!

This was another one of my favorite Scarpetta stories. Fast moving with lots of surprises.

This book is a good mystery; however, it would have been just as effective without the strong language. I put it down several times because of that, but really wanted to see how the "perp" was caught so I finished it. I also enjoyed the references to Virginia since that's my home state.
