scariest book I've ever read!!

I couldn't put this one down. Cornwell delivers in spades with this book. Definitely on my list of favorites.

Excellent read.

Quite a suspenseful tale, this one. A decomposing body in a shipping container. A shot and badly beaten and bitten corner store clerk. Interpol. And in the midst of all of this, someone is trying to ruin Dr. Scarpetta’s reputation by hacking email and by conducting an online chat “Ask Dr. Scarpetta”. Another great offering from Cornwell. 4.5 stars.
