Publisher's Summary

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 inside the cooler.

When the revolutionary 3D radiology scans reveal more shocking details about internal injuries unlike any Scarpetta has ever seen, Scarpetta 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....

    "An author running out of ideas"

    This book by Patricia Cornwell falls well short of her best writing. The plot is threadbare and there is so much padding that long before the midpoint I had lost interest. There is no further development of the characters which are central to the Kay Scarpetta books.

    "Not one of her best!"

    While I have read and enjoyed all of Patricia Cornwall's books through the years this was a disappointment as an audiobook. It may have been due to the style and tone of the narrator - it appeared to drag on.
