Mystery & Suspense • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Here's the marvelous team of Cornwell, Scarpetta, and Critt up to their ghastly best again. Five dismembered torsos in Ireland and four in Virginia are where this thriller begins, but worse is still to come--smallpox. Or is it? People are dying in diverse locations at a rate of one hundred percent, and when Scarpetta is exposed, the terror is intensified. C.J. Critt urges the listener on with subtle pacing and distinct characters. Everyone from naive young men to crotchety admirals and series regular Pete Marino is polished in our imagination by Critt's clarity. Kay Scarpetta herself plays many roles in this novel--doctor, ex-lover, aunt, survivor, and victim. The psychological elements unveil much more of her complex personality to the reader. B.H.B.
