Description
In this thrilling new installment of Patricia Cornwell's #1 bestselling series, chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta finds herself a reluctant star witness in a sensational televised murder trial causing chaos in Old Town Alexandria with the threat of violent protests. Forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta has just inherited one of the most notorious cases of her career. Two years ago, a former beauty queen's body washed up on the shore of Wallops Island, Virginia. She was last seen on a boat with her fiancé, who has since been held in jail while awaiting trial. Scarpetta must act as the expert witness for the case-an investigation previously botched by another forensic pathologist. After a grueling cross-examination by the prosecutor, Scarpetta leaves the court only to discover that the sister of the judge on her case has been found dead.  Scarpetta ultimately finds herself facing a powerful, invisible enemy who's planning the unthinkable . . . Patricia Cornwell is recognized as one of the world's top bestselling crime authors with novels translated into thirty-six languages in more than 120 countries. Her novels have won prestigious awards including the Edgar, the Creasey, the Prix du Roman d'Aventure, the Sherlock, the Galaxy National Book Award, and Gold Dagger. In addition to the Scarpetta series, Patricia has written a definitive book about Jack the Ripper, a biography, and three more fiction series, among others. Cornwell, a licensed helicopter pilot and scuba diver, actively researches the technologies that inform her work.  "Dr. Kay Scarpetta, who keeps us coming back to Patricia Cornwell's sprawling crime novels, is one tough broad."-New York Times Book Review "Scarpetta is brilliant, compassionate and humble, excelling in her profession and in diplomacy."-Library Journal, Starred Review for Autopsy Patricia Cornwell is a "masterful mysterian."-Kirkus Reviews "Everyone knows Scarpetta; she has the wit, intelligence, and strength that any forensic sleuth should own. This never-stop action plot is yet another gift to readers from Patricia Cornwell-a literary artist that is never going to stop writing some of the best and most memorable thrillers out there."-Suspense Magazine "Cornwell's demonic plot shifts and changes almost page by page, so the reader's spun round not knowing what to believe."-Providence Journal, Praise for Depraved Heart
