This is the first in the Kay Scarpetta series introducing us to the medical examiner who also does her own fair share of detective work. Said to have inspired many a TV show such as the CSI series, these books have plenty of scientific detail and excellent plot lines to keep you gripped until the end.

Postmortem Synopsis

The first Dr Kay Scarpetta Mystery, which won five international awards when it was first published.
 
A serial killer is on the loose in Richmond, Virginia. Three women have died, brutalised and strangled in their own bedroom. There is no pattern: the killer appears to strike at random - but always early on Saturday mornings.

So when Dr Kay Scarpetta, chief medical officer, is awakened at 2.33 am, she knows the news is bad: there is a fourth victim. And she fears now for those that will follow unless she can dig up new forensic evidence to aid the police.

But not everyone is pleased to see a woman in this powerful job. Someone may even want to ruin her career and reputation …
