Publisher's Summary

The "book of the dead" is the morgue log in which all cases are entered.

For Kay Scarpetta, however, it is about to have a new meaning. She moves to South Carolina in the hope of a quieter life, but then a series of violent murders begins.

Told in 3rd person...

The previous Patricia Cornwell books I have purchased on Audible were all told in 1st person - from Kay's perspective.

I only got to the 2nd chapter of Book of the Dead when I couldn't stand the "he says", "she says" over & over again.
