The newest book is entitled Scarpetta, and Cornwell explained in this video how the book represents a turning point in her fiction. Tune in to find out more about Cornwell’s future plans, her fictional crest, and her new novel.

Here’s a description of the new novel: “Leaving behind her private forensic pathology practice in Charleston, South Carolina, Kay Scarpetta accepts an assignment in New York City, where the NYPD has asked her to examine an injured man on Bellevue Hospitals psychiatric prison ward. The handcuffed and chained patient, Oscar Bane, has specifically asked for her, and when she literally has her gloved hands on him, he begins to talkand the story he has to tell turns out to be one of the most bizarre she has ever heard.”
