The Bone Bed: A Scarpetta Novel

ISBN: 9780399157561
New York, NY: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2012. First Edition. Hardcover. Signed by Patricia Cornwell. “A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over two thousand miles away in Boston. She has no idea why. But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist’s disappearance is connected to a series of crimes much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.” (from front flap) The acclaimed Dr. Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell (b. 1956), the award-winning & phenomenally popular American crime-fiction author, continues with this archaeological murder mystery, the 20th installment. The mysterious connection between the crime and Scarpetta unravels as she investigates the disappearance of paleontologist Emma Schubert. Returning to the first-person narrative, Cornwell’s heroine is shown returning to her roots of forensics and ruminating on where she’s ended up. For readers of the series, this novel is a revitalization of the character after being overwhelmed by conspiracies and circumstances out of her control in the previous two novels. The familiar cast of characters makes an appearance to assist Scarpetta, including her genius niece, Lucy, and detective Pete Marino. Yet another gripping murder-mystery thriller from Cornwell.
