"When it comes to the forensic sciences, nobody can touch Cornwell."
-The New York Times Book Review

Port Mortuary, the title of Patricia Cornwell's eighteenth Scarpetta novel, is literally a port for the dead. In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high- tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she accepted a scholarship from the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt. Now, more than twenty years and many career successes later, her secret military ties have drawn her to Dover Air Force Base, where she has been immersed in a training fellowship.

As the chief of the new Cambridge Forensic Center in Massachusetts, a joint venture of the state and federal governments, MIT and Harvard, Scarpetta is confronted with a case that could shut down her new facility and ruin her personally and professionally.More Reviews and Recommendations

Editorial Reviews -

Port Mortuary (Kay Scarpetta Series #18)

From Barnes & Noble
Two baffling cases of carefully conceived murder, one in the distant past and one all too recent, dominate this new Kay Scarpetta novel. A South African hate crime at the very beginning of Kay's career merges with an insidious "post-mortem" slaying that could be the portent of almost unimaginable mass terror. Intense forensic action in true Scarpetta style.
