The clues to a series of remorseless killings go up in smoke--and only Kay Scarpetta can find them in this #1 New York Times bestseller from Patricia Cornwell.

"Sears its way into the psyche...Ablaze with Cornwell's finest, scariest writing."-- Atlanta Journal Constitution

The devastating fire tore through the horse farm, destroying everything it touched. Picking through the wreckage, Dr. Kay Scarpetta uncovers human remains--the work of an audacious and wily killer who uses fire to mask his brutal murders. And when Scarpetta learns that her old nemesis, Carrie Grethen, has escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is somehow involved, the investigation becomes personal. Tragedy strikes close to home. And Scarpetta must match Grethen's every move with one of her own to douse the inferno of evil that threatens everyone around her...

Not bad at all, entertaining, fast-paced, and even if lacking in originality, it makes for a good and fast read
