The case begins when a cargo ship arriving at Richmond, Virginia's Deep Water Terminal from Belgium is discovered to be transporting a locked, sealed container holding the decomposed remains of a stowaway. The post mortem performed by the Chief Medical Examiner, Kay Scarpetta, initially reveals neither a cause of death nor an identification. But the victim's personal effects and an odd tattoo take Scarpetta on a hunt for information that leads to Interpol's headquarters in Lyon, where she receives critical instructions: go to the Paris morgue to receive secret evidence and then return to Virginia to carry out a mission. It is a mission that could ruin her career. In a story which crosses international borders, BLACK NOTICE puts Dr Kay Scarpetta directly in harm's way and places her and those she holds dear at mortal risk.

Black Notice keeps you in suspense as Kay Scarpetta tries to solve an international mystery and deal with her own personal demons. Patrica Cornwell continues to excel in her writings as she explores this unusual scenario. She is inventive and accurate in her portrayal of the life of a medical examiner.
In this book you will find great and effusive descriptions of smells encountered as a byproduct of being the Medical Examiner. Each novel by this author reveals at length aspects of her job and this one will take you a long way by the nose. Beware if you have a delicate stomach because some of the means to examine the dead body are lovingly elaborated upon. All of her wonderful companions are still here; Lucy is still having relationship issues and Pete Marino is still as unhealthy as ever having an almost superhuman tolerance for all the vices. Dear readers who follow Dr Scarpetta's career might find this a bit formulaic but for an introduction to this series-well it is so good it really stinks!
