New York Times Bestseller

In this relaunch of the electrifying, landmark #1 bestselling thriller series, chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta hunts those responsible for two wildly divergent and chilling murders.

Forensic pathologist Dr. Kay Scarpetta has come almost full circle, returning to Virginia, the state where she launched her storied career, as the chief medical examiner. Finding herself the new girl in town once again after being away for many years, she's inherited both an overbearing secretary and a legacy of neglect and potential corruption.

She and her husband, Benton Wesley, now a forensic psychologist with the U.S. Secret Service, have relocated to Old Town Alexandria, where she's headquartered five miles from the Pentagon in a post-pandemic world that's been torn apart by civil and political unrest. After just weeks on the job, she's called to a scene by railroad tracks??a woman's body has been shockingly displayed, her throat cut down to the spine??and as Scarpetta begins to follow the trail, it leads unnervingly close to her own historic neighborhood.

At the same time, a catastrophe occurs in a top secret labo­ratory in outer space, endangering at least two scientists aboard. Appointed to the highly classified Doomsday Commission that specializes in sensitive national security cases, Scarpetta is summoned to the White House and tasked with finding out exactly what happened. But even as she remotely works the first potential crime scene in space, an apparent serial killer strikes again very close to home.

This latest novel in the groundbreaking Kay Scarpetta series captivates readers with the shocking twists, high-wire tension, and forensic detail that Patricia Cornwell is famous for, proving once again why she's the world's #1 bestselling crime writ… (lisätietoja)

I feel like I might have missed reading the previous book in the Kay Scarpetta series. I don't remember what happened to Lucy's family. Time to go back and read (re-read?) Chaos so I can figure out what happened.
I prefer the older Kay Scarpetta novels as they had more forensic details and with Kay's new position there is more politics involved. ( )

Autopsy finds Dr. Kay Scarpetta as the new Chief Medical Examiner in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. She and her husband, Benton Wesley, relocated there after leaving Richmond years earlier and now live in a gated community with her niece, Lucy, sister Dorothy and Dorothy's new husband, Pete Marino. Narrating in the first person, the author leads us through several homicide investigations and an extraordinary autopsy in space while tracking a serial killer. Suspenseful and chock full of Patricia Cornwell's expert medical analysis, this psychotic thriller is impossible to put down until the last page is read. ( )

I always think I'm going to enjoy a Scarpetta novel, but I never really do. Kay Scarpetta lacks warmth. Kay has relocated to Virginia, back to her original stomping grounds to lead the ME department. She is thrust into 2 murders: one in outer space, and one very close to her home in Old Town. Her secretary, Maggie, is still loyal to her former asshole protege, Elvin Reddy. As always, Kay figures out how the crime was committed, leading to the why of it all. ( )

So disappointed in this book, series and author.

Out of the blue, Pete Marino is married to Scarpetta’s sister. Lucy has lost her partner and adopted child. No spoilers - that happens in the first five minutes of the book. There is nothing left of either character from this series’ roots. This is not characters developing, this is an author throwing stuff against the wall to see if something sticks. What a waste. ( )

Great read until the ending. It was like she got to page 350 and decided to wrap it up in 2 pages.. ( )
