When Dr. Kay Scarpetta, freelancing from South Florida, returns to Richmond, Virginia, at the request of the recently appointed Chief Medical Examiner, who claims that he needs her help to solve a crime, she finds that nothing is as she left it: her former lab is being demolished; the chief isn't really the one who requested her; her former assistant chief has personal problems that he refuses to reveal; and a glamorous FBI agent meddles with the case. Without the assistance of her colleagues Benton and Lucy, who are busy in what first appears to be an unrelated attempted rape by a stalker, Scarpetta must solve the death of a fourteen-year-old girl. All she has to go by are the smallest pieces of evidence and twisting leads and details that will reveal the sad truth that might be more that she can bear.… (mais)

Still using the slightly more distant writing style that seemed to be adopted a few books ago in this series, KS and PM ahead to Richmond at the request of the current ME to look into a tricky case. Lucy continues to make poor choices, and those have some consequences that feature heavily in this instalment. She’s lucky to have the continued support of Rudy, but for how much longer? ( )

This book wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be. The Last Precinct was a better read. There wasn't much action in this one, the characters weren't fleshed out very well at all, and the capture of the bad guy was very, very anti-climactic. I didn't even care much for Scarpetta in this book; her niece Lucy seemed to be a self-absorbed rich b***h; I don't know why she put certain characters in with others (she has Benton in Aspen "babysitting" Lucy's employee, who was attacked in Lucy's home). There is no resolution of a feud between Scarpetta and Virginia's new chief medical examiner, and really no hint that this will be re-visited in a future book (maybe she resolves it in another novel, I haven't heard). This book was quite a let down all the way around. ( )

This was not Cornwell's best work. It was very interesting with Dr. Kay Scarpetta as usual, but she returned to Richmond to help with a case but is not very welcome there. She doesn't get much information and I'm really surprised she stayed but when she did the autopsy. she realized the poor young girl was murdered and Dr. Scarpetta will not stop until she finds the murderer. But toward the end after the big build up, the end just felt rushed and thrown together. Like she needed to finish things before a deadline. Give us some credit and follow through with a more thorough ending. ( )

This book too so long to develop into a reasonable mystery. Not at all one of the author’s best efforts. Good thing I got it at a library used book sale for only a couple bucks. ( )

Forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta is called back to her old stomping grounds of Richmond, Virginia to consult on the mysterious death of a 14 year old girl. Joined by her good friend, Marino, the two set out to uncover the truth despite their presence not being completely welcome by the new chief medical examiner of the state. Meanwhile, Kay’s niece Lucy is working on her own investigation with the help of Benton and Rudy, trying to unravel the motive and identity of a possible stalker who attempted to murder someone in Lucy’s employ.

Like her previous book in the series, Trace has not been too popular among the circle of readers I associate with. And so it was with a bit of reluctance that I picked up the latest installment in the series to read. About 120 or so pages into the book, I finally was hooked into the story. I enjoyed the book overall, but like Blow Fly, was disappointed with the ending. It seemed anticlimactic. Whereas in Blow Fly I was able to convince myself that the story was much more about the relationships of the characters, I am not able to do that with Trace. Ms. Cornwell spends a lot of time creating and weaving the story together and yet when it comes time to reach the conclusion, it feels almost as if the reader is left out in the cold. With a snap of the finger, the case is resolved, the killer caught and little explanation is made as to how the characters made that final leap other than a quick sentence or two after the fact. It leaves me feeling like I must have missed something. She left a lot of loose ends as well, with very little explanation for much of what happened or was happening. The character development was poor. I will definitely think twice before reading another book by Patricia Cornwell. Her last three books have been really disappointing.

Kay Scarpetta regresa a la clínica forense de Richmond (Virginia) -que fuera durante años su centro de trabajo- para participar en la investigación de la muerte de una adolescente. Gilly Paulsson fue hallada muerta en su cama sin aparentes signos de violencia; no obstante, el hecho de que la autopsia se esté posponiendo más de lo previsto y que el FBI esté interesado en conocer los resultados de la misma despierta el recelo de la forense. Benton Wesley, desde su refugio en Aspen, confirma las sospechas de Scarpetta cuando le recomienda cautela, pues ha dado con información extraoficial que insinúa que el caso Paulsson podría estar siendo utilizado como tapadera.

Scarpetta, ayudada por Pete Marino, intentará dilucidar qué hay de verdad en todo ello, a la vez que se enfrentará a la hostilidad con que la trata Joel Marcus, el forense jefe que la sustituyó en su cargo, descontento con el regreso dela reputada doctora.

Mientras tanto, Lucy y Benton tratan de encontrar a la persona que atacó a Henri cuando ésta se alojaba en casa de la primera.

Además de revelar la dirección que tomarán una y otra investigación, Patricia Cornwell narra la emocionante vuelta de Scarpetta a la institución a la que hizo célebre y de la que fue injustamente despedida.
