Scarpetta does not find answers to questions she has on the autopsy she has preformed, no name and no cause of death. Scarpetta does have her personal effects and a strange tattoo that stirs her interest. This case takes her to Europe. In her pursuit for answer she puts herself and others in danger. You fly through the story as she flies all over the world. This is one of her better plots. By Ruth Thompson author of “The Bluegrass Dream” and Natchez Above The River”
