A 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 2,000 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.
This is Kay Scarpetta as you have never seen her before. The Bone Bedis a must-listen for any fan of this series, or an ideal starting point for new readers.

A tedious disappointment - Don't Bother!

Such Frustrating Narration!!!!
I was so excited for a new Scarpetta - but pretty disappointed with the ho-hum story line and the overall tired feeling to the book. It seemed as though Ms. Cornwell was trying to meet a deadline...nothing new, nothing exciting but still nice to hear from the recurring characters.
I hate to be cruel but Kate Reading has no business narrating. Her character voices vacillate between downright boring and just plain silly...just awful. She also mispronounces several words in this one - so annoying and distracting to the story.
