Scarpetta is back!

Join Patricia Cornwell, one of the world’s top bestselling crime authors with novels translated into thirty-six languages in more than 120 countries, as she celebrates the twenty-fifth novel in her electrifying, landmark #1 bestselling thriller series about chief medical examiner, Dr. Kay Scarpetta.

World-renowned forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta and her husband Benton, a psychologist with the US Secret Service, have returned to Virginia. They are headquartered five miles from the Pentagon in a post-pandemic world that’s been torn by civil and political unrest.

Just weeks into the job, Scarpetta is called to a railway track where a woman’s body has been shockingly displayed, her throat cut down to the spine. But the trail of clues will lead Scarpetta back to her own neighbourhood.

At the same time, a catastrophe occurs in a top-secret lab in outer space, endangering the scientists aboard. Scarpetta is summoned to the White House to find out what happened. As she starts the new investigation, an apparent serial killer strikes again, this time dangerously close to home.

In conversation for this virtual event, Patricia will consider the inspiration behind her new book and why she thinks her iconic characters have grown into an international phenomenon. She’ll also share stories from her career, such as holding her first book signing on her lunchbreak from the morgue, and her intensive research into cutting-edge forensic technologies to include in her work.

Characteristically compelling, don’t miss the opportunity to spend an evening with one of our greatest living crime writers.
