LoveReading Expert Review of Body of Evidence

Following murder cases from the post-mortem through all the detective work is not usually the job of the medical examiner but Cornwell is such a good story teller one can suspend belief and simply get caught up in scrutinising the clues and racing along with the fast paced plot. This is the second in the series and will have you double checking the windows are locked and the doors are bolted before you go to bed!

Body of Evidence Synopsis

The second novel in the best-selling Dr Kay Scarpetta series.

A reclusive writer is dead. And her final manuscript has disappeared ...

Someone is stalking Beryl Madison. Someone who spies on her and makes threatening, obscene phone-calls. Terrified, Beryl flees to Key West - but eventually she must return to her Richmond home. The very night she arrives, Beryl inexplicably invites her killer in ...

Thus begins for Dr Kay Scarpetta the investigation of a crime that is as convoluted as it is bizarre. Why would Beryl open the door to someone who brutally slashed and then nearly decapitated her? Did she know her killer? Adding to the intrigue is Beryl's enigmatic relationship with a prize-winning author and the disappearance of her own manuscript.

As Scarpetta retraces Beryl's footsteps, an investigation that begins in the laboratory with microscopes and lasers leads her deep into a nightmare that soon becomes her own.
