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...

Good book

I enjoyed this book but sometimes the story did tend to woffle on about nothing. The narrator was good and so was the plot. If you like Patricia Cornwell you will really enjoy this book

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Gave me a headache

Recited in such a grim expressionless monotone it's hard to tell if there's a worthwhile book in there.
First chapter sounded like a lot of acronyms and internal politics.
Couldn't take any more after that.
