Back in 1990, Patricia Cornwell penned her very first Kay Scarpetta novel, Postmortem. Hailed as one of the most influential crime novels ever written, it changed the face of crime fiction, bringing thrilling, fast paced forensic investigation to the fore, and laying a path for future authors, as well as series such as CSI.
20 years on, Patricia Cornwell is still at the top of her game. Port Mortuary, her brand new hardback, publishes today, and delves deep into Scarpetta’s past. Told for the first time in many years from Scarpetta’s point of view, it brings the reader even closer to this iconic forensic investigator and will send a shiver down the spine of the most hardened crime fiction fan.
