And it is not too long before these new skills urgently need to be put into practice. A young man drops dead, apparently from a heart condition, eerily close to Scarpetta's home. But when his body is examined the next morning, there are stunning indications that he may have been alive when he was zipped inside a pouch and locked inside the cooler. When the revolutionary 3D radiology scans reveal more shocking details about internal injuries unlike any Scarpetta has ever seen, Scarpetta realizes that this is a case of murder - and that she is fighting a cunning and uniquely cruel enemy.

Patricia Cornwell is one of my favorite writers, but this book wasn't as interesting as most of her novels have been. I coldn't quite catch what it was missing, but, usually, I can't put one of her books down until I've finished it and this one dragged on a bit.

Another Great Read
Ms. Cornwell has done again. Port Mortuary is an awesome book. I enjoyed the technical details about the "virtual autopsy" and "the flybot". Port Mortuary also goes into the secret past of Dr. Scarpetta and Jack Fielding. Port Mortuary is well written and a real page turner. I could not put it down.
