The handcuffed and chained patient, Oscar Bane, has specifically asked for her, and when she literally has her gloved hands on him, he begins to talk - and the story he has to tell turns out to be one of the most bizarre she has ever heard. He says his injuries were sustained in the course of a murder ...that he did not commit. Is Bane a criminally insane stalker who has fixed on Scarpetta? Or is his paranoid tale true, and it is he who is being spied on, followed and stalked by the actual killer? The only thing Scarpetta knows for certain is that a woman has been tortured and murdered - and that more violent deaths will follow...Hide synopsis

I loved this book! Sometimes Ms. Cornwell slips a little sometimes in her books, as if she's tired, but this one was terrific! I had a hard time putting it down!
Only complaint is that when I received this book, I found that it was a book club copy & the description didn't mention that. I would always want to know that before I purchase.
