Reviews

Kay Scarpetta, patholoog-anatoom, onderzoekt samen met een bevriende politieman een ingewikkeld moordgeval. Een vrouw, bedreigd en lastiggevallen, vlucht naar Key West, maar haar terugkeer wordt haar fataal. Spannende, goed geschreven thriller, de speurders zijn levendige figuren, mensen van vlees en bloed, de plot is bevredigend ingewikkeld en biedt voldoende aanknopingspunten voor slimme lezers. Pocketeditie, kleine druk.

Patricia Cornwell (born Patricia Carroll Daniels; June 9, 1956) is an American crime writer.
