Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

The past comes back to haunt Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta. As she investigates the death of a woman who was killed in a mysterious fire, Scarpetta must also worry about her former adversary, the psychopathic Carrie Grethen, who has vowed revenge against Scarpetta and company. Kate Reading gives a truly emotional and gut-wrenching performance. Having portayed Scarpetta three times now, Reading knows the character and becomes her. She draws the listener into the story, enabling us to feel Scarpetta's pain and distress as she faces the most tragic moment of her life. Although the mood of the story is dark, Reading's multi-dimensional performance also captures some lighter moments between major characters Scarpetta and Marino. This is a don't-miss episode for Scarpetta fans. With Reading at the helm, listeners won't be disappointed. M.H.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
