Little Emily Steiner left a church meeting late one afternoon and strolled toward home along a lakeside path; a week later, her nude body was discovered, bound in blaze-orange duct tape. Called by the North Carolina authorities, forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta recognizes similarities to the gruesome work of a serial killer who has long eluded the FBI. But as she tries to make sense of the evidence, she is left with questions that lead her to the Body Farm, a little known research facility in Tennessee where, with the help of some grisly experiments, she might discover the answer.

It is Scarpetta alone who can interpret the forensic hieroglyphics that eventually reveal a solution to the case as staggering as it is horrifying. But she must also try to help her niece, Lucy, who is embroiled in controversy at Quantico. And as she opens herself to the first physical and emotional bond she has felt in a long time, she becomes vulnerable as well. Tenacious and brilliant, tender and gentle, this is Scarpetta even more realized and poignant than we’ve seen her before—in a stunning achievement from a bestselling author at the peak of her powers.

    " I love the Scarlett’s series, but disappointed that one of her books in the series “The body farm” is found no where to listen to, please get this book for audiobooks!! "

    " I didn't like Body of Evidence as much as I did the first in the series. I just found the killer this time to be as disturbing as the first but far more frightening. The body count is high and the mystery is thrilling, but some of the storyline kind of took strange turns I wasn't expecting at all. "

    " Dr. Scarpetta Novels are always great. Twists and turns in plot.
    Written 20 yrs ago, no cell phones & character got cigarettes for $2.00 a pack. Lol but still a good read. "

    " I hate when the killer is someone out of left field not every involved in the main plot. I lost interest half way through, but made myself finish it. "

    " Having actually worked in a Medical Examiners office, Patricia Cornwell accurately depicts the job of Dr. Kay Scarpetta, Chief M.E. of the Virgina Commonwealth. Although her character goes much farther than a normal M.E. would go to solve the crime, there's never a dull moment. "

    " The second book in the series and it certainly had me looking for book three. Good gripping, detailed writing and really enjoyable "
