Returning home from Ireland, where she had been called in to examine the remains of a murder victim whose body was marked by the signature of a cunning serial killer, medical examiner Kay Scarpetta is shocked when another body turns up, this time in a Virginia landfill

Blackwell North Amer
Dr. Kay Scarpetta is newly returned from Dublin, where she was called in to examine the remains of a murder victim whose limbs and head were expertly severed - a signature of a cunning serial killer on the loose again after an eight-year sabbatical - when the same killer apparently strikes again, this time much closer to home. After Scarpetta investigates the murder scene, the killer boldly contacts her through the Internet, inviting her to download photos of the murder victim and signing off with a chilling screen name: deadoc.
When Scarpetta determines that the victim was exposed to a rare smallpox-like virus before she died and, later, that she herself may have been infected, she realizes that she is up against a killer with access to an incredibly sophisticated arsenal of deadly force - a killer with a specific animus directed toward her.

Another book very much in the Cornwell style. Dr. Scarpetta is a fun character that makes for an entertaining read as long as you're willing to put all credibility aside

Suspenseful, a real page turner. You will not be able to guess the ending. Patricia Cornwell is at her best with this one,
