A cold case turns red-hot when a death-row inmate renews his acquaintance with Dr. Kay Scarpetta in this "utterly chilling" ( Entertainment Weekly ) #1 New York Times bestseller.

Settling into her new life as a private forensic consultant, Kay Scarpetta agrees to investigate a cold case in Louisiana--the baffling eight-year-old murder of a woman with a history of blackouts and violent outbursts. Then she receives news that chills her to the core: Jean-Baptiste Chandonne--the vicious and unrepentant Wolfman who pursued her to her very doorstep--has asked to see her. From his cell on death row, he demands an audience with the legendary Dr. Scarpetta. With her friends and family by her side, Scarpetta tries to guess what sort of endgame this madman has in mind--how, if at all, it's related to the Louisiana case--and then confronts the shock of her life: a blow that will force her to question the loyalty and trust of all she holds dear...

I didn't like this book at all. Somehow it felt like Cornwell made an outline and someone else filled in the blanks

This is a great book that was interesting from beginning to the end. I highly recommend it for people who are looking for a forensic mystery novel.

An interesting murder/mystery
by an author new to me and made more enjoyable by a
short chapter style such as by James Patterson.
