Description

It’s a sunny morning in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and also Dr. Kay Scarpetta’s birthday.She’s about to head to Miami for a vacation with Benton Wesley, her FBI profiler husband, when she notices seven pennies on a wall behind their home. Is this a kids’ game? If so, why are all of the coins dated 1981 and so shiny they could be newly minted? Her cell phone rings, and Detective Pete Marino tells her there’s been a homicide five minutes away. A high school music teacher was shot with uncanny precision as he unloaded groceries from his car. Yet no one heard or saw a thing.

In this twenty-second Scarpetta novel, she finds herself in the unsettling pursuit of a serial sniper who leaves no incriminating evidence except fragments of copper. The shots seem impossible to achieve, yet they are so perfect that they cause death in an instant. The victims appear to have had nothing in common, and there is no pattern to indicate where the killer will strike next. First New Jersey, then Massachusetts, and now it looks like the killer has moved elsewhere, to the murky depths off the coast. It’s here that Scarpettadives a shipwreck, looking for answers that only she can discover and analyze. Andwhere she comes face to face with shocking news that implicates her techno genius niece, Lucy, Scarpetta’s very own flesh and blood.

With the bravura storytelling and state-of-the-art forensic details that are her hallmarks, Patricia Cornwell again raises the bar with this highly entertaining new tale, her most captivating Scarpetta novel yet.

    Horrible. The plot never developed. Lousy ending. My very last Cornwell book.

    In one word this is what I think of Patricia Cornwell's writing generically speaking. I have read all of her novels starting in 1997 on a by-chance suggestion. Thank you Patti C for your compelling work!

    I love how smart and strong and vulnerable her main women characters are. I highly recommend Patricia Cornwell's books. That said, I sometimes get tired of the relationship between Kay and Marino. As much as I like both characters I find myself sometimes wishing that Marino would get knocked off so we don't have to spend so much time on his character defaults. I would like more of Benton and Kay's niece Lucy to be featured in the books. I also would love it if Benton and Lucy got their own books featuring them and what goes on in their heads. I am eagerly awaiting the next book! Thank you Patricia Cornwell for your great writing.
