From the Publisher A New York Times Bestseller -- A tanking economy has prompted Dr. Kay Scarpetta to offer her services pro bono to New York City''s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. In no time at all, her increased visibility seems to precipitate a string of unexpected and unsettling events. She is asked live on the air about the sensational case of Hannah Starr, who has vanished and is presumed dead. Soon Scarpetta''s finds herself embroiled in a surreal plot...Given the bizarre events already in play, she fears that her growing fame will generate the illusion that she has a "special factor," a mythical ability to solve all her cases. She wonders if she will end up like other TV personalities: her own stereotype.
