The Bone Bed – Patricia Cornwell

The Bone Bed – Patricia Cornwell

by BookPlaza (Verified)


A palaeontologist has vanished in the Canadian wilderness, and the only clues turn up in the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over 2,000 miles away in Boston. Soon Scarpetta begins to suspect the woman’s disappearance is connected to crimes much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures and trace evidence from the dinosaur age. When she turns to those around her, she finds that danger and suspicion have penetrated even her closest circles, and she’s tempted by someone from her past as she tracks a killer both cunning and cruel.

“In 1990, Patricia Cornwell sold her first novel, Postmortem, while working at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond, Virginia. An auspicious debut, it went on to win the Edgar, Creasey, Anthony, and Macavity awards as well as the French Prix du Roman d’Aventure prize – the first book ever to claim all these distinctions in a single year.
Today, Cornwell’s novels and now iconic characters, medical examiner Kay Scarpetta, her niece Lucy and fellow investigator Pete Marino, are known all over the world. Beyond the Scarpetta series, Patricia has written a definitive account of Jack the Ripper’s identity, cookbooks, a children’s book, a biography of Ruth Graham, and two other fiction series based on the characters Win Garano and Andy Brazil.
