From the Editor

Like millions of readers around the world, I’ve long been a fan of Patricia Cornwell’s Dr. Kay Scarpetta, who ushered forensic science into popular culture and became a literary role model for a generation. With Quantum, Cornwell introduces us to a captivating new heroine for the twenty-first century in the kickoff to an of-the-moment series that will change the way we think about cybertechnology and space science.

A brilliant physicist, keen-eyed NASA investigator, fearless pilot, and aspiring astronaut, Captain Calli Chase is in many ways a spiritual heir to Scarpetta. She’s also a twin, and the mystery that fuels this story centers around the whereabouts and potentially sinister activities of her sister, Carme, a decorated military officer who also aspires to the stars. In trying to clear her sister’s name, Calli will be forced to reckon with secrets from her past as well as a vast conspiracy that puts national security in jeopardy.

A high-stakes thriller that blends groundbreaking technology, complex twists, and a compelling emotional story, Quantum launches us into the world of Captain Chase at Mach speed, with a cliffhanger ending that left me eagerly awaiting the sequel, Spin, which releases next summer. I can’t wait to see where Patricia takes us then.

- Gracie Doyle, Editor


Product description

Review

"The creator of Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta peers into space and finds just as much skullduggery there...[introducing] an equally strong, even more tormented heroine...[in] federal special agent Capt. Calli Chase." --Kirkus Reviews

"Move over, Doctor Kay Scarpetta...Quantum inaugurates a new series with a confident new heroine..." --The Telegraph

"Cornwell's long-time fans will recognize her talent for jumping immediately into action. From page one, the reader is drawn into the space and time of the characters, as Cornwell wastes no time getting the reader oriented into the story. The claustrophobic confines of the opening setting are fantastically described, to the point that readers may have to remind themselves to breathe normally." --The Nerd Daily

"Brilliantly crafted, gripping, and smart..." --Post Register

"Buckle up for a race to the finish that does not disappoint." --Bookreporter

"As always, Cornwell establishes time, place, and mood by expertly crafting each scene to make you feel as if you're in it." --New York Journal of Books

"Gripping, suspenseful, and leaves you wanting more." --Better Reading

Book Description

International bestselling author Patricia Cornwell delivers pulse-pounding thrills in a series featuring a brilliant and unusual new heroine, cutting-edge cyber-technology, and stakes that are astronomically high.
