The sound of a bullet hitting flesh
Dr. Kay Scarpetta is in pursuit of a sniper who leaves no trace except copper fragments. The impossible shots cause instant death.
The target is closer than you think
The victims have nothing in common, and there is no indication where the killer will strike next.
You won't hear it - you're already dead
Scarpetta tracks the sniper across the country to the Florida coast. Here she uncovers shocking evidence implicating her niece, Lucy - Scarpetta's very own flesh and blood.
