Publisher's Summary

A serial killer is on the loose in Richmond, Virginia. Three women have died, brutalised and strangled in their own bedrooms. There is no pattern: the killer appears to strike at random, but always early on Saturday mornings.So when Dr Kay Scarpetta, chief medical officer, is awakened at 2.33 am, she knows the news is bad: there is a fourth victim. And she fears now for those that will follow unless she can dig up new forensic evidence to aid the police.But not everyone is pleased to see a woman in this powerful job. Someone may even want to ruin her career and reputation.

Disappointing listen

Don't bother with the abridged version. It's very short, lacks the depth and development you would expect in a novel like this. I didn't feel emotionally invested, didn't care about any of the characters and found myself checking the audio to confirm that it was actually the end. It was rushed. I was expecting some twists or suspense but it never happened. It felt like the ending was pulled out of a hat with little build up to it, and it left me feeling disappointed.
Im sure the unabridged version would be good but defiantly don't bother with the abridges version.

Great buy

I have read all the Scarpetta books and really enjoyed them- but hearing Lindsay speak the words really enhanced the experience
