Kay Scarpetta has been training at the Dover Port Mortuary, mastering the art of 'virtual autopsy' - a groundbreaking procedure that could soon revolutionise forensic science. And it is not too long before these new skills urgently need to be put into practice. A young man drops dead, apparently from a heart condition, eerily close to Scarpetta's home. But when his body is examined the next morning, there are stunning indications that he may have been alive when he was zipped inside a pouch and locked in the cooler.

When the revolutionary 3D radiology scans reveal more shocking details about internal injuries unlike any Scarpetta has ever seen, she realizes that this is a case of murder - and that she is fighting a cunning and uniquely cruel enemy. Now it is a race against time to discover who and why before more people die. But that time is running out . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A thrilling read * Best *
Long, terse and brilliant...Cornwell, who has already won more prizes than you can shake a stick at, seems to be getting better and better * City AM *
A gripping read made more chilling by Cornwell's note that the sci-fi technology she's describing actually exists * Metro *
A bountiful offering from one of crime fiction's most celebrated authors...arguably her most accessible book in more than a decade * Hartford Books Examiner *

“Below par”

I always love stories that start with a bang, and even though Port Mortuary faild to do that the book still grabbed my attention. The hanging possibility at the begining that EMTs and removal service could have missed... More

“Not Recommended”

I had to push myself to finish this book. As another reviewer said it was HARD WORK. It's the first book I've read from Patricia Cornwell and won't be in a hurry to read another.

“Doubt that I will be reading this book again”

I can honestly say that this is the worst Scarpetta novel ever. I have actually given up trying to finish this. Reading is usually my joy and solace......but this felt like a punishment. Rambling plot (what plot there... More
