A reclusive writer is dead. And her final manuscript has disappeared …
Someone is stalking Beryl Madison. Someone who spies on her and makes threatening, obscene phone-calls. Terrified, Beryl flees to Key West – but eventually she must return to her Richmond home. The very night she arrives, Beryl inexplicably invites her killer in …
Thus begins for Dr Kay Scarpetta the investigation of a crime that is as convoluted as it is bizarre. Why would Beryl open the door to someone who brutally slashed and then nearly decapitated her? Did she know her killer? Adding to the intrigue is Beryl’s enigmatic relationship with a prize-winning author and the disappearance of her own manuscript.
As Scarpetta retraces Beryl’s footsteps, an investigation that begins in the laboratory with microscopes and lasers leads her deep into a nightmare that soon becomes her own.


A great writer ... read these books only in broad daylight
Head-under-bedclothes tension
Cornwell is the one to beat when it comes to slick, speedy chillers
Cornwell's strength remains her resolute refusal to glamorise crime, hitting sickeningly home with the gruesome details while relentlessly building up the tension to a finger-chewing climax.
