When Chief Medical Examiner, Dr Kay Scarpetta is sent to investigate the 400 year-old violent death of one of America's first settlers at Jamestown, Virginia, she attracts more than just the attention of the media. Soon she and her niece Lucy and Detective Pete Marino are the targets of nuisance threats that rapidly develop into vicious hate crimes clearly intended to eliminate Kay and everyone else closely involved in solving the ancient crime.
And when it becomes apparent that the authorities will offer no protection or assistance, Kay is forced to take matters into her own hands - with results that change their lives forever.
'The Last Precinct' is a gripping and thrilling adventure into the past melded with present-day page-turning and explosive action. As always, Cornwell's meticulous attention to the forensic details, the endearing character of Kay Scarpetta, and suspense and sculduggery ensure Cornwell's millions of fans will not be disappointed.
