Kay Scarpetta is a forensic pathologist who normally lives in South Carolina but lately has been based in New York and is doing pro bono work for the Medical Examiners office. This book is the 17th in the Scarpetta series. I think that the series sounds interesting but the language is just so awful that I can't stand to read the books. Rated R for language.
I am going to make a list of the authors I refuse to read any more. Patricia Cornwell will definitely be on that list!
