Dr. Kay Scarpetta is back
Forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta and her husband relocated to Old Town Alexandria where she’s headquartered five miles from the Pentagon. Just weeks on the job, she’s called to a scene by railroad tracks where a woman’s body has been shockingly displayed, her throat cut down to the spine, and as Scarpetta begins to follow the trail, it leads unnervingly close to her own historic neighborhood.
At the same time, a catastrophe occurs in a top-secret laboratory in outer space, endangering at least two scientists aboard. Scarpetta is summoned to the White House and tasked with finding out exactly what happened. But even as she works the first potential crime scene in space, an apparent serial killer strikes again very close to home.
