About This Book
Reading Cornwell's latest is like riding one of those amusement-park roller
coasters. The rider gets on, and the car starts slowly up the first big hill,
momentarily hesitating at the top before plunging down, down, and around,
leaving the rider gasping and breathless, with trembling limbs and a palpitating
heart, exhilarated but shaken, even after the ride is over. Cornwell lulls the
reader with a slow start, then builds relentlessly to a heart-stopping climax
400 hundred pages later. Virginia medical examiner Kay Scarpetta once again
faces her psychopathic nemesis, Temple Gault, the horrifying, seemingly
invincible serial killer. Gault has struck again, this time brutally murdering a
young homeless woman in New York's Central Park on Christmas Eve. Gault's also
broken into CAIN, the know-all, see-all FBI computer system that Scarpetta's
niece, Lucy, has created. And in his uncanny way, Gault has entered Scarpetta's
mind, anticipating her every thought and move as he goes about his own
drug-induced, psychotic killing games. It takes all Scarpetta's steely courage
and mental superiority to stay a step ahead of Gault, to try to stop him before
he kills again. From Richmond to New York, Scarpetta, her friend Captain Pete
Marino, and her niece Lucy stay hot on Gault's trail, and finally, in a
terrifying, knuckle-whitening, breathtaking climax, they trap him deep in the
bowels of New York's subway system. Once again, Cornwell proves herself one of
today's most talented crime fiction writers, an author who keeps her readers on
the edges of their seats with magnificent plotting, masterful writing, and
marvelous suspense. This is certain to be one of the most popular thrillers of
the year. --Emily Melton
