Berkley 1995 0425147622 / 9780425147627 Paperback Near Fine 
Cornwell ( Body of Evidence ; All That Remains ) casts a wider, surer narra tive net in the latest case set for her increasingly complex heroine, Kay S carpetta, Chief Medical Examiner for the Commonwealth of Virginia. As an FB I consultant, Scarpetta investigates the North Carolina murder of 11-year-o ld Emily Steiner, whose mutilation suggests the M.O. of an escaped killer m et previously in Cruel and Unusual. Forensic clues from the body's second a utopsy prompt Scarpetta to request that certain experiments be made at the University of Tennessee's Decay Research Facility, known as the Body Farm. Meanwhile, she, Pete Marino of the Richmond, Va., police, and her new love interest, FBI Unit Chief Benton Wesley investigate the apparent suicide (fr om autoerotic asphyxiation) of the local FBI agent in charge of the case. T hen, Scarpetta's computer-whiz niece Lucy, working at FBI headquarters at Q uantico, is charged with violating security. During her travels between Nor th Carolina and Virginia, Scarpetta worries about both the less-than-forthc oming Lucy and Marino, who becomes emotionally entangled with Emily's beaut iful stricken mother. Results at the Body Farm lead her to a convincing, if abrupt, resolution. Deeper characterization and a more intricate plot mark this fifth in a consistently compelling series.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The new Kay Scarpetta novel from the world's #1 bestselling crime writer. After working one of the worst mass killings in U.S. history, Scarpetta ret urns home to Cambridge, Massachusetts. Exhausted and ill, she's recovering at home when she receives an unsettling call. The body of a young woman has been discovered on the Massachusetts Institut e of Technology's rugby field. The victim, a graduate student named Gail Sh ipton, is oddly draped in unusual cloth and posed in a way that is too deli berate to be the killer's first strike. A preliminary examination in the se a of red mud where the body has been left also reveals a bizarre residue th at fluoresces blood red, emerald green and sapphire blue. Physical evidence links the case to a series of uniquely weird homicides in Washington, D.C., where Scarpetta's FBI husband has been deployed to help capture a serial killer dubbed the Capital Murderer. The cases all connect and yet seem to conflict. Gail Shipton was murdered for financial gain--or was she? It will require the usual ensemble of characters to find out the truth, including Scarpetta's sidekick Pete Marino, who has undergone a drastic change in his life that places him center stage in a Cambridge investigation that puts everyone at risk. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

13 Cornwell, Patricia FROM POTTER'S FIELD
Berkley 1996 0425154092 / 9780425154090 Paperback Very Good 
Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta plays a tense cat-and-mouse game with a serial killer, an old enemy, in her sixth outing (following The Body Farm ), and he has her badly rattled. The story begins as a rotten Christmas for Scarpetta: Temple Gault has struck again, leaving a naked, apparently home less girl shot in Central Park on Christmas Eve; Scarpetta, as the FBI's co nsulting pathologist, is called in. Later, a transit cop is found shot in a subway tunnel, and, back home in Richmond, Va., the body of a crooked loca l sheriff is delivered to Scarpetta's own morgue by the elusive, brilliant Gault. The normally unflappable Scarpetta finds herself hyperventilating an d nearly shooting her own niece. In the end, some ingenious forensic detect ive work and a visit to the killer's agonized family set up a high-tech cli max back in the New York subway, which Gault treats as the Phantom of the O pera did the sewers of Paris, and Scarpetta, stuck with her own family trou bles and involved in a rather glum affair with a colleague, seems to be run ning low on energy. Still, this is a compelling, fast-moving tale.

ISLE OF DOGS, Cornwell, Patricia
17 Cornwell, Patricia ISLE OF DOGS
Berkley Pub Group 2002 0425186768 / 9780425186763 Paperback Near Fine 
Be aware: this is not your typical Patricia Cornwell novel. Not only is the re no Kay Scarpetta, but Isle of Dogs is a comic romp, a real departure for this author. It does center around a couple of characters from past books- -police chief Judy Hammer and reporter-turned-cop Andy Brazil of Hornet's N est and Southern Cross. But the plot, style, and tone will remind you more of Carl Hiaasen's dark comedies. The madcap doings get underway when the addled, nearly blind governor of Virginia confusedly launches a speed-trap program on isolated Tangier Island, whose prickly, eccentric residents promptly attempt secession. Cornwell adeptly interweaves other crisscrossing plot lines involving a gang of street-stupid thugs gunning for Hammer and Brazil, an angel-faced serial killer, a kidnapped dog, and more. She does miss a few beats: the pacing sags during certain episodes, and at times the writing strains so hard for laughs that instead it draws winces. Nonetheless, Isle of Dogs is for the most part a funny, diverting read and a refreshing departure for Cornwell. --Nicholas H. Allison--This text refers to the
