La doctora Scarpetta se enfrenta a uno de los desafíos más difíciles de su carrera. La médica forense Kay Scarpetta está trabajando en la escena de una muerte sumamente sospechosa en Cambridge, Massachusetts, cuando recibe en su móvil un mensaje urgente, que contiene un enlace. Se trata de un vídeo de vigilancia de hace casi veinte años, en el que aparece su sobrina Lucy, un genio de la informática, realizando actividades muy sospechosas. Al primer vídeo le siguen otros, y la doctora Scarpetta se ve obligada a reconocer que la vida de la joven, a la que ha criado y querido como a una hija, está rodeada de secretos. Patricia Cornwell lanza a Kay Scarpetta y otros inolvidables personajes como su esposo Benton Wesley, del FBI, el detective Pete Marino y la propia Lucy, a una intensa odisea que incluye la misteriosa muerte de la hija de un magnate de Hollywood y una búsqueda entre los restos de un avión siniestrado en las profundidades del Triángulo de las Bermudas. Mientras tanto, alguien con una mentalidad diabólica, casi inhumana, está tejiendo una trama que podría destruir la carrera y a los seres queridos de Kay Scarpetta, y llevar a su sobrina a prisión el resto de su vida. La crítica ha dicho... «Oscura e ingeniosamente urdida.» Booklist «Cornwell construye el argumento con notable control, y lo mantiene firmemente enfocado en sus sólidos personajes.» Publishers Weekly «Otra historia turbulenta, cruda y realista de la magistral Cornwell. Concisa e intrincada, caótica y visceral, resulta plenamente satisfactoria.» Kirkus Reviews «Una vez que Scarpetta decide descubrir los secretos de Lucy, la novela se convierte en un thriller psicológico.» The New York Times Book Review «Vertiginosa y sumamente entretenida, plena de suspense y giros sorprendentes.» Providence Journal

Patricia Cornwell delivers the newest engrossing thriller in her high-stakes series starring medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta. Depraved Heart: “Void of social duty and fatally bent on mischief.” —Mayes v. People, 806 III. 306 (1883) Dr. Kay Scarpetta is working a suspicious death scene in Cambridge, Massachusetts when an emergency alert sounds on her phone. A video link lands in her text messages and seems to be from her computer genius niece Lucy. But how can it be? It’s clearly a surveillance film of Lucy taken almost twenty years ago. As Scarpetta watches she begins to learn frightening secrets about her niece, whom she has loved and raised like a daughter. That film clip and then others sent soon after raise dangerous legal implications that increasingly isolate Scarpetta and leave her confused, worried, and not knowing where to turn. She doesn’t know whom she can tell—not her FBI husband Benton Wesley or her investigative partner Pete Marino. Not even Lucy. In this new novel, Cornwell launches these unforgettable characters on an intensely psychological odyssey that includes the mysterious death of a Hollywood mogul’s daughter, aircraft wreckage on the bottom of the sea in the Bermuda Triangle, a grisly gift left in the back of a crime scene truck, and videos from the past that threaten to destroy Scarpetta’s entire world and everyone she loves. The diabolical presence behind what unfolds seems obvious—but strangely, not to the FBI. Certainly that’s the message they send when they raid Lucy’s estate and begin building a case that could send her to prison for the rest of her life. In the latest novel in her bestselling series featuring chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta, Cornwell will captivate readers with the shocking twists, high-wire tension, and cutting-edge forensic detail that she is famous for, proving yet again why she’s the world’s #1 bestselling crime writer.

After working on one of the worst mass killings in US history, Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta returns home to recover, but an unsettling call drives her straight back to work. The body of a young woman has been discovered inside the sheltered gates of MIT, draped in an unusual cloth and posed in a way that is too deliberate to be the killer's first strike. A preliminary examination reveals that the body is covered in a fine dust that under ultra-violet light fluoresces blood-red, emerald-green and sapphire-blue, and physical evidence links this to another series of disturbing homicides in Washington, DC. As Scarpetta pieces together the fragments of evidence she discovers that the cases connect, yet also seem to conflict, and with so much at stake, it's clear that she is the only one who can solve it . . . Dust is a thrilling, addictive novel featuring one of the most iconic, original and compelling characters in crime fiction today.

Settling into her new life as a private forensic consultant, Kay Scarpetta agrees to investigate a cold case in Louisiana—the baffling eight-year-old murder of a woman with a history of blackouts and violent outbursts. Then she receives news that chills her to the core: Jean-Baptiste Chandonne—the vicious and unrepentant Wolfman who pursued her to her very doorstep—has asked to see her. From his cell on death row, he demands an audience with the legendary Dr. Scarpetta. With her friends and family by her side, Scarpetta tries to guess what sort of endgame this madman has in mind—how, if at all, it’s related to the Louisiana case—and then confronts the shock of her life: a blow that will force her to question the loyalty and trust of all she holds dear…

With unparalleled high-tension suspense and the latest in forensic technology, Patricia Cornwell once again proves her exceptional ability to surprise—and to thrill—in this electrifying Kay Scarpetta novel. A body, oddly draped in an unusual cloth, has just been discovered inside the sheltered gates of MIT, and it’s suspected the identity is that of missing computer engineering grad student Gail Shipton, last seen the night before at a trendy Cambridge bar. It appears she’s been murdered, mere weeks before the trial in her $100 million lawsuit against her former financial manager, and Massachusetts Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta doubts it’s a coincidence. She also fears the case may have a connection with her computer genius niece, Lucy. In Dust, Scarpetta and her colleagues are up against a force far more sinister than a sexual predator who fits the criminal classification of a “spectacle killer.” The murder of Gail Shipton soon leads deep into the dark world of designer drugs, drone technology, organized crime, and shocking corruption at the highest levels.
