For decades, Patricia Cornwell has demonstrated her extraordinary ability not only to entertain and enthrall but to surprise as well. Beginning in January 2006, the  New York Times Magazine serialized a brand-new Cornwell thriller, a book filled with all the chilling suspense, rich characters, and trademark forensics that have made her an international phenomenon. But what she does with those ingredients is a revelation.

A Massachusetts state investigator is called home from Knoxville, Tennessee, where he is completing a course at the National Forensic Academy. His boss, the district attorney, attractive but hard-charging, is planning to run for governor, and as a showcase she’s planning to use a new crime initiative called At Risk; its motto: “Any crime, any time.” In particular, she’s been looking for a way to employ cutting-edge DNA technology, and she thinks she’s found the perfect subject in an unsolved twenty-year-old murder in Tennessee. If her office solves the case, it ought to make them all look pretty good, right?

Her investigator is not so sure—not sure about anything to do with this woman, really—but before he can open his mouth, a shocking piece of violence intervenes, an act that shakes up not only both their lives but the lives of everyone around them. It’s not a random event. Is it personal? Is it professional? Whatever it is, the implications are very, very bad indeed—and they’re about to get much worse.

Sparks fly, traps spring, twists abound. This is the master working at the top of her game.

Listener Opinions

    " I have to admit, I like Cornwell's Scarpetta novels a lot more than the Winston ones. The writing/plot is good - I just can't feel as much love for the characters! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Amkd69 | 2/9/2014

    " Couldn't get into it so gave up. Seemed a bit too formulaic. But then again I have so many books to read I'm getting fussy. "

    " If you like Patricia Cornwell, you will like this book as well. Murder and mystery at its best! Overall a good short read. Good for a short flight or weekend read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Keith Hughes | 1/20/2014

    " This was a fun read. It is 1/4 the size of a Scarpetta mystery, with about 1/4 of the complexity. But Patricia provides some believable characters and a plot with a couple of surprises. "
