No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell delivers the twenty-third engrossing thriller in her high-stakes series starring medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta.
The death of Chanel Gilbert has virtually everyone convinced it’s an accident. But Dr. Kay Scarpetta knows better. Her razor-sharp instinct tells her that this Hollywood mogul’s daughter’s death is anything but.
Scarpetta is sidetracked when she is sent a surveillance film of her niece Lucy – from nearly twenty years ago. The clip reveals some disturbing secrets, but before she can show anyone, the FBI raid Lucy’s estate for proof of a crime that could land her in prison for life.
Meanwhile, cracks are appearing in the Gilbert case. Blood patterns, time of death – it’s almost as if someone is leaving evidence only she would spot. Scarpetta suspects it’s all connected: the videos, the FBI, and Chanel’s death. But who is pulling the strings? If it’s who she thinks it is, they won't stop until everyone Scarpetta loves is destroyed.
In her latest Scarpetta novel, Patricia Cornwell delivers shocking twists, high-wire tension, and cutting-edge forensic detail, proving yet again why she’s the world’s #1 bestselling crime writer.
