Lorelei King deftly navigates the serpentine plotting in Cornwell's 22nd Scarpetta novel. First, Dr. Kay Scarpetta, Chief Medical Examiner for Massachusetts, receives an unsettling email. Then, carefully arranged on her garden wall, she finds seven shiny copper pennies, all dated 1981. Minutes later, she's called to a murder scene. Scarpetta and longtime colleague Detective Pete Marino are on the trail of "Copperhead," a serial sniper. King keeps the action humming. She carefully develops character and atmosphere while dealing with political unrest, extremists, terrorism, and murders--old and new. She brings warmth to the usually cool Scarpetta, especially those moments with her husband, F.B.I. profiler Benton Wesley, and during her childhood reminiscences.
