Product description


'One of the most interesting and singular bodies of work in popular fiction.' SUNDAY TIMES

'Imitators now abound, but - pathologically speaking - nobody does it like Cornwell' LITERARY REVIEW

'Cornwell's vision is a bleak one and Scarpetta is a lone crusader against not simply evil but also chauvanism, prejudice and loneliness, mediocrity and compromise. This is perhaps the bleakest- and the best- of Cornwell's novels; its denouncement is painful and shocking, but it has the unmistakable taste of reality.' GUARDIAN

'One of Cornwell's very best Brilliant readership manipulation, with unease cultivated as prolifically as cress and a militantly hard line taken on law 'n' order Unmissable.' LITERARY REVIEW

'The tension doesn't let go for a second and the build up to the climax, merging the homicidal arsons and Scarpetta's showdown with Grethren, is stunningly staged.' THE TIMES

'The world's most popular female sleuth returns in another top notch chiller.' DAILY MIRROR

'The pace and the science make this the usual compulsive read.' MAIL ON SUNDAY

'The pathology is fascinating, as is the sinister atmosphere generated by Cornwelll's cool prose.' HARPERS AND QUEEN


'Sears its way into the psyche.' (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

'Cornwell proves yet again that she's one of America's most gifted and compelling writers. The mistress of psychological thrillers has dished up one of her scariest, darkest, most diabolical stories yet.' (Booklist)

'Cornwell is the class act.' (Vogue)
