    DescriptionA woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over two thousand miles away in Boston. She has no idea why. But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist's disappearance is connected to a series of crimes much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age. When she turns to those around her, Scarpetta finds that the danger and suspicion have penetrated even her closest circles. Her niece Lucy speaks in riddles. Her lead investigator, Pete Marino, and FBI forensic psychologist and husband, Benton Wesley, have secrets of their own. Feeling alone and betrayed, Scarpetta is tempted by someone from her past as she tracks a killer both cunning and cruel.

    Review quote
    "The tight plot keeps a local focus, the disconnected deaths are neatly tied together...and there are plenty of stomach-churning autopsies performed with cutting--edge equipment."--"The New York Times Book Review" "An ingenious murder method, more hours in the mortuary and forensics lab than usual, an uncharacteristically muffled killer, and all the trademark battles among the regulars and every potential ally who gets in their way."--"Kirkus Reviews" "The story is nail-bitingly violent and suspenseful, and it highlights Scarpetta's signature survival instinct, brilliant logic and attention to personal relationships."--"The City Paper" (Nashville, TN)
