Postmortem - Patricia Cornwell

A serial killer is on the loose in Richmond, Virginia. Three women have died, brutalised and strangled in their own bedroom. There is no pattern: the killer appears to strike at random - but always early on Saturday mornings. So when Dr Kay Scarpetta, chief medical officer, is awakened at 2.33 am, she knows the news is bad: there is a fourth victim. And she fears now for those that will follow unless she can dig up new forensic evidence to aid the police. But not everyone is pleased to see a woman in this powerful job. Someone may even want to ruin her career and reputation ...

Book #18
- This is my first ever Patricia Cornwell and based on this one, there will be more. I really enjoyed this book. Not the smartest thing to finish it at 12:30a when you have to work in the morning and you're home alone. Again, not smart!
