9780751530773: TRACE

Since POSTMORTEM garnered critical acclaim and a record-breaking five awards for a first crime novel, the Scarpetta novels have often been imitated, but never bettered. Against her own judgement and the advice of Benton Wesley and her niece, Lucy, Scarpetta agrees to return to Virginia as a consultant pathologist on a case involving the death of a fourteen-year-old girl. Accompanied by Pete Marino she finds the once familiar territory of her morgue and her department much changed, and the new Chief Medical Examiner treats her with disdain despite the obvious fact that he is in desperate need of her expertise. But professional as ever, she re-examines the evidence and proves the girl was murdered. She also finds trace evidence which matches that found on an accident victim and at the scene where one of Lucy's operatives was attacked. It is not only a forensic puzzle, but opens up the probability that someone is after those closest to Scarpetta. Visit the author's website at

About the Author:

Since the first novel was published in 1990, Patricia Cornwell and her creation, Kay Scarpetta, have become household names & she has earned widespread critical acclaim. She helped to establish the Virginia Institute of Forensic Science & Medicine & serves as Chairman of the Board.

From AudioFile:

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
