Publisher's Summary

It is the week before Christmas. The effects of the credit crunch have prompted Dr Kay Scarpetta to offer her services pro bono to New York City’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

She is asked live on the air about the sensational case of Hannah Starr, who has vanished and is presumed dead.

Nail Biting

What made the experience of listening to The Scarpetta Factor the most enjoyable?

A brilliant Scarpetta novel - when Patricia Cornwell still kept the tension high. It would help to have read the book before to understand some of the villains.

I would not have read Lucy in such a wimpy voice, but all the other voices were well read and in character.

Boring and confusing

Too many ingredients doesn't do good soup. I listen to it to the end, but now I don't know how it ended, so much I was confused. Too many people, relations and yet, it was boring.

Good!

A definitive and comprehensive understanding of what Kay Scarpetta does, when dealing with crime and dead bodies. Worth a listen!
