When Postmortem, the first riveting novel in the Kay Scarpetta series, was published, it was an instant success. Since then, Patricia Cornwell's works have topped international best-seller lists and have won Gold Dagger and Edgar Awards. In Black Notice she weaves forensic details and taut suspense into a tale of macabre crime. When a badly-decomposed body is discovered in a shipping container at the Richmond docks, Chief Medical Examiner Scarpetta is bewildered by the evidence. The man has foreign, unrecognizable money in his pockets and baby-fine strands of hair in the waistband of his expensive trousers. Her search for his identity will push Scarpetta into a maze of personal nightmares and professional traps. It will also lead her to a confrontation with the most monstrous villain of her career. As Scarpetta realizes the international proportions of her investigation, narrator C.J. Critt skillfully captures the pathologist's thoughts and emotions. Black Notice is charged with the raw power that has become Patricia Cornwell's trademark style.
