Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The nearly surreal opening scene of Unnatural Exposure makes Cornwell's latest Kay Scarpetta immediately gripping and quite possibly literary", declared Patricia Holt in her front-page San Francisco Chronicle review of the author's most recent instant #1 bestseller. "Patricia Cornwell retains that finer Dickensian indignation with the ways of the world that has been neglected by the small landscapes of much so-called serious writing", observed Mary Lee Settle in The Washington Post. "Cornwell is the class act", wrote Mary Cantwell in Vogue.

Now America's leading crime writer combines that literary talent and style with a fierce commitment to justice in her thrilling and complex new Scarpetta novel. Point of Origin will stand as one of Cornwell's best, a gripping story that transcends the genre to examine the dark side of the human soul.

About the Author

Patricia Cornwell's most recent bestsellers include Red Mist, Port Mortuary, and Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper-Case Closed. Her earlier works include Postmortem-the only novel to win five major crime awards in a single year-and Cruel and Unusual, which won Britain's prestigious Gold Dagger Award for the best crime novel of 1993. Dr. Kay Scarpetta herself won the 1999 Sherlock Award for the best detective created by an American author.
