On a quiet day, away from the hustle of Richmond, in a small cottage on the Virginia coast, Dr. Kay Scarpetta receives a disturbing phone call from the Chesapeake police. Thirty feet deep in the murky waters of Virginia’s Elizabeth River, a scuba diver’s body is discovered near the Inactive Naval Shipyard. As the police begin searching for clues, the wallet of investigative report Ted eddings is found. Unnerved by the possible identity of the victim, Scarpetta orders the crime scene roped off and left alone until she arrives. What was he doing there, searching for Civil War relics as the officer suggested or was there a bigger story? As she rifles through the multitude of clues, a second murder hits much closer to home. This new development puts Scarpetta and her coleagues hot on the trail of a military conspiracy.

Filled with lurid details that Cornwell’s legions of fans have come to expect, Cause of Death is a breathtaking mystery further enhanced by C. J. Critt’s gripping narration.

    " I liked the book it started out as, but not the "oh no, terrorists!" ending. It wasn't the intricate, subtle mystery I was hoping for. "

    " a great airplane/beach book. it kept me enthralled from the third page until the last! the ending and overall plot may be a little unrealistic, but there were no loopholes or unanswered questions by the end of the book (a pet peeve of mine). "

    " I know that I have read this book befor. But I'm going back and re-reading them because 1 it's been so long ago and 2 I really enjoyed them. Great book. Tense, gut-wrenching and scary to quote the book. I couldn't put it down. Each chapter just egged me on to see what was going to happen next. "
