Dr. Kay Scarpetta, now freelancing with the National Forensic Academy in Florida, takes charge of a case that stretches from steamy Florida to snowbound Boston, one as unnerving as any she has ever faced. The teasing psychological clues lead Scarpetta and her team, Pete Marino, Benton Wesley, and Lucy Farinelli, to suspect that they are hunting someone with a cunning and malevolent mind whose secrets have kept them in the shadows, until now.

Listener Opinions

    " Not my favorite Scarpetta book. Seemed a little disjointed compared to others, but still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MJ | 2/9/2014

    " SPOILER....Cornwell did her usual superb job of telling her story. Kay, Lucy, Benton and Pete are characters who draw us right into the twisted minds of the predators. This story began to answer some of the questions that I've had about Lucy and what she was going to do next and about Benton and his role in Kay's life. I think Lucy will come to terms with her illness and continue to lead the institute she's created. I'm glad to see the book proposing that civilians begin to get involved in solving crimes - but how to do that without becoming vigilantes is the question. I think Cornwell may have hit on the answer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nelda | 2/7/2014

    " I'm addicted to Scarpetta! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyndi | 2/6/2014

    " Maybe I missed something, but this book had no ending! Guess she wants us to keep reading her series, which I didnt even know I was in a series when I picked this up from the library. Not overly impressed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candace | 1/24/2014

    " This one was one of my favorites. Totally twisted! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marie | 1/2/2014

    " A classic beach read--and being at the beach is the only reason to read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie | 12/24/2013

    " starting to get really creapy at times "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 12/4/2013

    " Why does she continue to write these books? Money. Why do I continue to read them? That is the real question.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren Mayet | 11/16/2013

    " Not the best book of hers that I read. I figured it out in the first half of the book. however, it did keep me at the edge of my seat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 10/25/2013

    " It was hard to get into at the beginning and the ending was abrupt. I haven't read this series in order, but I enjoyed the earlier books in the series more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hanna Andersen | 10/24/2013

    " I usually like Kay Scarpetta, but this book was mostly confusing... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeanette | 8/21/2013

    " This book deserved less that one star review, probably the worst book I've ever read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue Boros | 8/10/2013

    " As I write this review all over the place so is the book written. Not a fan. You may enjoy it though "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tanya Jackson | 8/6/2013

    " Normally I read a book in a week. It took me several weeks to get to page 155 with this one and I'm far from hooked. Disappointing. I typically love her books and this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janai | 7/28/2013

    " Aftter the first few pages I realized that I've already read this. But I'm going to read it again because I love her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary | 6/26/2013

    " Pretty good, but a little difficult to follow at times... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lili | 5/14/2013

    " Each of Patricia Cornwell's books are without doubt brilliant in their research, each are spellbinding and each are gory beyond belief. Yet each and everyone holds the reader throughout. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tammy | 5/1/2013

    " This book was absolute crap. I only finished it to make sure I didn't miss any info JUST in case her next novel isn't as shitty as the last few. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Athy | 1/22/2013

    " This is typical Scarpetta. Some people may not like it and at times it is heard to read or depressing. But the author does a good job balancing the content. The science is real. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 10/3/2012

    " One of the earlier books, and a good read. Lots of insight into the characters, especially Pete Marino and Lucy, the niece. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Verdoorn | 8/21/2012

    " A little confusing but a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kia | 8/11/2012

    " I usually love Patricia Cornwell, but this one seemed to drag on. It was boring compared to her other novels. I almost didn't even finish it, but out of loyalty to Patricia I did. Hopefully the rest of her books on my to-do list are better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eeyore | 2/27/2012

    " Not bad but I want to know what happened to the uncle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenene | 12/27/2011

    " Excellent! Very suspenseful! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachel | 8/3/2011

    " I was taken in by the premise and, when I noticed the poor writing and gaping plot holes, assumed they wouldn't persist throughout the book. I was disappointed. To be fair, however, if not for my inability to suspend disbelief, it might have been a page-turner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dani | 7/5/2011

    " I have read every book in this series. I left me with concern!! Major things happened to the regulars! I am both curious and afraid of what that will mean for the next book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy Romanosky | 6/18/2011

    " Ok. Her normal. Nothing new. Just ends. Disappointing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Malecia | 6/16/2011

    " It was slooooow. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dani | 5/23/2011

    " This was my first Patricia Cornwell book. And though I finished the book (which as a writer I think makes the book a success), I didn't enjoy it and hardly remember anything about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 4/28/2011

    " First Kay Scarpetta book i've read. Kept me glued the whole way through! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 4/24/2011

    " I love all the Scarpetta thrillers but sometimes they end rather abruptly, as was the case in Predator. Don't let this put you off, Cornwell never fails to produce a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kerri | 4/13/2011

    " I liked this story enough in that Criminal Minds kind of way. The story was interesting, but disturbing. Other reviews indicate that this is one of Cornwell's weakest books, but it was my first...so I can't compare. I found it entertaining, but I'm not sure I'd read another one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marge | 4/2/2011

    " Still seems to be a lot of anger in these Kay Scarpetta novels and that's why I stopped reading them in the first place. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curlyhair | 3/24/2011

    " Still well written as all the previous books, but def not one of my fav's of the series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 3/9/2011

    " I hadn't read any Patricia Cornwell books recently because I found them depressing and too violent. This was depressing and a little violent in parts. Probably won't read any more Cornwell for awhile! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie | 3/2/2011

    " A Kay Scarpetta series full of mystery and suspense. I have read a few in this series and would like to read more if I ever run out of books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Siobhan | 2/12/2011

    " I found it hard to put down and did NOT figure out the ending before I read it :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trisha | 1/30/2011

    " As usual, Patricia Cornwell delivers a Scarpetta novel that doesn't disappoint. No real surprises but still a good read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crestina | 1/23/2011

    " Feels like watching CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI and BONES. "
