At Risk

New or Used: 2 copies from $10.90
A 'one-off' from the best-selling creator of the Dr Kay Scarpetta series, based on the serialisation in the New York Times. Moving between the chill of Cambridge, Massachusetts and the sultry humidity of Knoxville, Tennessee, Winston Garano, a police investigator, is instructed to look into a twenty-year-old murder case. Although Win reckons there are many more pressing current cases which should have higher priority, he gets on with the task, unaware of the can of worms he will prise open. With her hallmark qualities of deft characterisation, perfect research and tense story-telling, Patricia Cornwell has created a novella which entertains, intrigues and satisfies.

About the Author

Patricia Cornwell's first novel, POSTMORTEM, was published in 1990 and won five international awards. Her Scarpetta novels have since become No. 1 bestsellers throughout the world. She has also published three police procedurals, HORNET'S NEST, SOUTHERN CROSS and ISLE OF DOGS.


Cornwell tries a new cast of characters in this brief mystery whereby a 20-year-old cold case in Tennessee catches the interest of an ambitious female Massachusetts D.A., who assigns it to her most trusted investigator. At times a political novel more than a forensic tale, this book has secrets and manipulations that cause intrigue in three states. Not as fully realized as the tired Scarpetta series, this new cast can offer Cornwell a new direction while still highlighting her familiar expertise. Although very well read by Kate Reading, the story feels a bit as if it were abridged. Recommended for mystery collections that like to mix the tried-and-true with the new.-Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo, NY Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
