Dr Scarpetta is looking at cases that seem to connected, only some of them are in Ireland and some are in the US. Plus, Scarpetta has been receiving photos online of one of the crime scenes, and so it seems that the killer has somehow got her email address (it is one of the difficult things living with 2020 technology but reading a book with 1997 technology… when Scarpetta gets her niece to explain how a photo can be sent by email, it seems ridiculous). Then there appears to be smallpox in the mix… and that’s a whole nother concern, although lead to some great quarantining, which is always fun times.
This is a great Scarpetta book, intrigue, twists that I didn’t guess, violence and excitement left right and centre. Very cool.
