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 ...

    Review quote
    '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
