Publisher's Summary

Critic Reviews

"Cornwell's books run on high octane fuel, a cocktail of adrenalin and fear. Black Notice is no exception." ( The Times)
" Black Notice is undoubtedly her best book for some time: Not only because of some excellent scalpel work, but mainly because it is not so much about crime as about Scarpetta." ( Evening Standard)
"Imitators now abound, but - pathologically speaking - nobody does it like Cornwell." ( Literary Review)

Watch you back Dr Scarpetta!

This book sees Kay's world rocked and not in a nice way. It all starts badly when Senator Lord bring her a letter which Benton's asked to be delivered 1 year following his death. This devastates Kay and leaves her vulnerable to those closest to her.

There is a new chief of Police in town and her name is Diane Bray. Whilst stunning to look at she has the charm of a snake and the manner of an alley cat. She is out to destroy all that Kay holds dear, starting with moving Marino and undermining what happens in the lab at any given opportunity.

Not the best Scarpetta novel but decent. 7/10

Narrator Lorelei King is brilliant. Story is ok.... felt the character of Bray and Anderson could have been developed over another novel or two. Still a gripping story. Still think Scarpetta comes across too weak at times for someone capable of doing her job.

Best one yet 😀

This one had me on the edge of my sit, holding my breath and saying no, don't do this or that, really it is only a story but it takes me away from reality into another realm 😁 l am ready for the next one.
