Kay Scarpetta has come back to her old job. She doesn't know most of the employees and she's not fond of the new secretary or her boss.
William Morrow and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you). It has been published and you can get a copy now.
Her first call out is to the railroad where a nude woman with no hands has been killed. Then she finds out there was another death not far away. That one was judged as an accident but Scarpetta doesn't think so.
Besides that, there is a space ship that has two dead on it. The Russian made it home OK, but they have proof he murdered the other two.
As Kay and her husband, Benton, try to solve the railroad deaths, it gets to be very tough to find the killer.
Kay, herself almost died from a glass of wine she started to drink. Who set her up?
There is plenty going on and Kay is in the middle of it.
She even gets fired...
