Über diesen Titel:
A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over two thousand miles away in Boston. She has no idea why.
But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect the paleontologist's disappearance is connected to a series of crimes much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.
When she turns to those around her, Scarpetta finds that the danger and suspicion have penetrated even her closest circles. Her niece Lucy speaks in riddles. Her lead investigator Pete Marino and FBI husband Benton Wesley have secrets of their own. Feeling alone and betrayed, Scarpetta is tempted by someone from her past as she tracks a killer both cunning and cruel.
'Patricia Cornwell is America's most stimulating and chilling writer of crime fiction.' (Aaron Beck, Psychiatrist)
'The tight plot keeps a local focus, the disconnected deaths are neatly tied together ... and there are plenty of stomach-churning autopsies performed with cutting-edge equipment.' (The New York Times Book Review)
'An ingenious murder method, more hours in the mortuary and forensics lab than usual, an uncharacteristically muffled killer, and all the trademark battles among the regulars and every potential ally who gets in their way.' (Kirkus Reviews)
'Her genuine affection for, and interest in, her main character radiates through the novel, and her research for The Bone Bed is as thorough as ever. Where Cornwell excels is in her ability to transcend the clichés and deliver a good, old fashioned thriller that has enough CSI-style touches to draw in the forensics-obsessed fan while never taking her eye off her plotting and characters.' (Sunday Business Post)
