A good read. Kay is a great character. I like how she puts Marino in his place for his rampant bigotry, I have a feeling as we go through the series that he’s going to undergo personal growth on that front. ( )

Der zweite Fall für Kay Scarpetta

Dr. Kay Scarpetta, Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond, Virginia, wird in einen besonders aufsehenerregenden Fall verwickelt: Die erfolgreiche Schriftstellerin Beryl Madison ist bestialisch ermordet worden. Und obwohl sie sich schon seit längerem bedroht fühlte, hat sie ihren Mörder anscheinend freiwillig ins Haus gelassen. Scarpettas einziger Anhaltspunkt ist ein verschwundenes Manuskript, an dem Beryl lange gearbeitet hat. Sein brisanter Inhalt scheint kostbarer zu sein als ein Menschenleben ...

I enjoyed reading this book. Dr Scarpetta's personal relationships are not as developed in this book as they are in later books, but that is what happens when you read books out of order. I liked that the story was about an author. The central mystery was a little convoluted. The killer seemed pretty random, but maybe that was the point. Sometimes bad things just happen. I am looking forward to reading more in the series. ( )

I was glad that she took the opportunity to bring up PTSD in a number of places, but with a functional character.
