The discovery of the decomposed body of a stowaway aboard a cargo ship arriving in Richmond from Belgium leads Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta on a perilous international odyssey from Virginia to Paris on a mission that could destroy her career and threatens her own life and the lives of everyone she loves

Blackwell North Amer
The nightmare begins when a cargo ship arriving at Richmond's Deep Water Terminal from Belgium is discovered to be transporting a locked, sealed container holding the decomposed remains of a stowaway.
The autopsy performed by Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta initially reveals neither a cause of death nor an identification. But the victim's personal effects and an odd tattoo take Scarpetta on a hunt for information that leads to interpol's headquarters in Lyon, France, where she receives critical instructions: Go to the Paris morgue to receive forbidden, secret evidence and then return to Virginia to carry out a mission. It is a mission that could ruin her career.

The book was definitely interesting and entertaining, even if I thought that the whole werewolf thing was overboard. I was disappointed with the ending, though, finding it anticlimactic after so much build up

This book is much darker than the earlier books. Compelling mystery and new places of interest. Patricia Cormwell really keeps the reader guessing on this book even more than the other ones.
