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 20-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.
