Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Patricia Cornwell delivers the 23 engrossing thriller in her high-stakes series starring medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta. 

"Dr. Kay Scarpetta ... [is] an awesome force in the field of forensic science" (New York Times Book Review)

Dr. Kay Scarpetta is working a suspicious death scene in Cambridge, Massachusetts when an emergency alert sounds on her phone. A video link lands in her text messages and seems to be from her computer genius niece Lucy. But how can it be? It's clearly a surveillance film of Lucy taken almost 20 years ago. As Scarpetta watches she begins to learn frightening secrets about her beloved niece that raise dangerous legal implications, leaving Scarpetta confused, worried, and unable to turn to Lucy, her FBI husband Benton Wesley, or her investigative partner Pete Marino. 

Cornwell launches these unforgettable characters on an intensely psychological odyssey that includes the mysterious death of a Hollywood mogul's daughter, aircraft wreckage on the bottom of the sea in the Bermuda triangle, a grisly gift left in the back of a crime scene truck, and videos from the past that threaten to destroy Scarpetta's entire world and everyone she loves. 

With the shocking twists, high-wire tension, and cutting-edge forensic detail that she is famous for, Cornwell will captivate listeners and prove yet again why she's the world's number one best-selling crime writer.

A boring book

I'm very sad to say but this book has been so boring I almost couldn't be bothered finnish it. I've been a huge fan of this series since the first book came out and I've been waiting in excitement for this book to come out. But the story is very weak this time, hardly anything happens. Too much going over the same stuff from the past. Yes, I understand that it's all very linked together, but previous books have had that and I story that is so exciting that I can't put it away. This one I fell asleep listening and that has never happened before.....
