Now freelancing from south Florida, Dr. Kay Scarpetta returns to Richmond, Virginia, the city that turned its back on her five years ago. Investigating the death of a young girl, she must follow the twisting leads and track the strange details in order to make the dead speak-and to reveal the sad truth that may be more than even she can bear.

Dr. Kay Scarpetta is back in Richmond and back at the top of her form, investigating the suspicious death of a 14-year-old girl at the request of the dislikable new medical examiner who has her old job. Meanwhile Scarpetta's niece, Lucy, is embroiled in a case in Florida with bizarre similarities to the Richmond one, and the two are linked by the sensationally creepy Edgar Allen Pogue, who once worked for Scarpetta. While the plotting is ingenious and intense, Cornwell's prose has gone very "faux Hemingway," which presents a challenge to Kate Reading: how to read with urgent seriousness yet avoid being inadvertently funny. Reading walks the razor-fine line with aplomb, and Scarpetta fans will be delighted. B.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
