Ten years after its initial publication, this "tense, gutwrenching, and scary"* Scarpetta favorite has been reissued with a stunning new cover. Also featuring a new introduction by Cornwell, Cause of Death is sure to entice readers, old and new alike.

Dr. Kay Scarpetta plunges into the murky depths of a ship graveyard to recover the very human remains of Ted Eddings, an investigative reporter. Together with her niece Lucy and police captain Pete Marino, Scarpetta will follow the scents of death and violence to the heart of sinister darkness.

*San Francisco Chronicle

Fascinating, frightening ...Reaffirms that Cornwell is one of the best crime fiction authors working today. (Miami Herald)

Filled with suspense. (Cosmopolitan)
