The new era of Scarpetta begins…

In this #1 New York Times bestselling novel, Patricia Cornwell takes her readers deeper into Kay Scarpetta’s heart and soul than ever before….

Thwarting an attack by a suspected serial killer puts Virginia’s Chief Medial Examiner Kay Scarpetta in the harsh glare of the spotlight. As her personal and professional lives come under suspicion, she discovers that the so-called Werewolf murders may have extended to New York City and into the darkest corners of her past. A formidable prosecutor, a female assistant district attorney from New York, is brought into the case—and Scarpetta must struggle to make what she knows to be the truth prevail against mounting and unnerving evidence to the contrary. Tested in every way, she turns inward to ask, Where do you go when there is nowhere left?

Great book for Kay Scarpetta fans, but unless you have read most books in the series before this one, the book can be really boring. As a standalone, I probably would not have finished it

1st Patricia Cornwell novel I’ve read, now I'm a fan. I didn't realize it was #11 in a series when I picked it up, I read it out of sequence but that didn't matter at all, you can jump in and enjoy this series without starting with the 1st book. Loved the main character Kay Scarpetta, a medical forensic specialist as she tracks the "French werewolf”. The supporting cast including her gay niece Julie, the slovenly detective Marino and an aging Nazi 'sympathizer’ were all terrific.
