Description

It's a sunny morning in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and also; Dr. Kay Scarpetta's birthday.She;s about to head to Miami for a vacation with Benton Wesley, her FBI profiler husband, when she notices seven pennies on a wall behind their home. Is this a kids game? If so, why are all of the coins dated 1981 and so shiny they could be newly minted? Her cell phone rings, and Detective Pete Marino tells her there's been a homicide five minutes away. A high school music teacher was shot with uncanny precision as he unloaded groceries from his car. Yet no one heard or saw a thing.

In this; twenty-second; Scarpetta novel,;she; finds herself in the unsettling pursuit of a serial sniper who leaves no incriminating evidence except fragments of copper. The shots seem impossib≤ to achieve, yet they are so perfect; that; they cause death in an instant. The victims appear to have had nothing in common, and there is no pattern to indicate where the killer will strike next. First New Jersey, then Massachusetts, ∧ now it looks like the killer has moved elsewhere, to; the murky depths off the coast.;It's here that; Scarpettadives; a shipwreck, looking for answers that only she can discover and analyze. Andwhere;she comes face to face with shocking ;news; that implicates her techno genius niece, Lucy, Scarpetta's; very; own flesh and blood.

With the bravura storytelling and state-of-the-art forensic details that are her hallmarks, Patricia Cornwell again raises the bar with this highly entertaining new tale, her most captivating Scarpetta novel yet.
