Under cover of night in Richmond, Virginia, a human monster strikes, leaving a gruesome trail of stranglings that has paralyzed the city. Medical examiner Kay Scarpetta suspects the worst: a deliberate campaign by a brilliant serial killer whose signature offers precious few clues. With an unerring eye, she calls on the latest advances in forensic research to unmask the madman. But this investigation will test Kay like no other, because it's being sabotaged from within and someone wants her dead.
From the author who virtually invented the forensic thriller comes this much-anticipated omnibus volume that features her first two novels, "Postmortem" and "Body of Evidence," that introduced Virginia Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta to the book-reading world.
A serial killer is on the loose in Richmond. Three women have died, brutalized and strangled in their own bedrooms. Kay Scarpetta, investigating the case, knows she must find some forensic evidence before the next killing. The author was previously an award-winning crime reporter.
This volume contains Postmortem and Body of Evidence, the first two Dr Kay Scarpetta novels. In Postmortem, a serial killer is on the loose in Richmond, Virginia, and in Body of Evidence, someone is stalking Beryl Madison.
Dr Kay Scarpetta has two problems. The first one is that a serial killer is strangling women in their own bedrooms; the second is that not everyone is thrilled that a woman is chief medical examiner. She uses all the technical tools at her disposal; computers, fingerprint-matching processors and DNA-testing equipment to identify the killer.
Deputy Chief Virginia West likes and respects her boss, Hammer, but with an increasing number of visiting businessmen being murdered in her city by a maniac with a penchant for painting his victims bright orange, she finds it hard to accept Hammer's edict that a rookie reporter should ride on patrol with her to better relations with their citizens. Her worst fears are confirmed when the reporter, Brazil, presses the button to activate the boot-release rather than the siren on their first outing. He's not the only blight on her life right now: her cat's angsty, her hormones are misbehaving, her opposite number in the uniformed division is behaving like a jackass, the radio despatcher is determined to trip her up, the D.A. is in the middle of a hot battle with the trial schedule. And orange coloured corpses keep turning up on her patch.
Now in a new premium edition, #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell’s suspense fiction classic, featuring gutsy medical examiner Kay Scarpetta. A reclusive author, Beryl Madison finds no safe haven from months of menacing phone calls—or the tormented feeling that her every move is being watched. When the writer is found slain in her own home, Kay Scarpetta pieces together the intricate forensic evidence—while unwittingly edging closer to a killer waiting in the shadows.
