A standalone novel from the queen of crime based on a serialisation in the New York Times. As you’d expect with Cornwell it’s fast paced, well-researched and a cracking read.

Synopsis

At Risk by Patricia Cornwell

A ‘one-off’ from the best-selling creator of the Dr Kay Scarpetta series, based on the serialisation in the New York Times.

Moving between the chill of Cambridge, Massachusetts and the sultry humidity of Knoxville, Tennessee, Winston Garano, a police investigator, is instructed to look into a twenty-year-old murder case. Although Win reckons there are many more pressing current cases which should have higher priority, he gets on with the task, unaware of the can of worms he will prise open. With her hallmark qualities of deft characterisation, perfect research and tense story-telling, Patricia Cornwell has created a novel which entertains, intrigues and satisfies.

Reviews

"Cornwell still does it better than anyone else." Daily Mail

"Cornwell's books run on high octane fuel, a cocktail of adrenalin and fear." The Times
