Book 21, Scarpetta - A Scarpetta Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
With unparalleled high-tension suspense and the latest in forensic technology, Patricia Cornwell once again proves her exceptional ability to surprise—and to thrill—in this electrifying Kay Scarpetta novel.
A body, oddly draped in an unusual cloth, has just been discovered inside the sheltered gates of MIT, and it’s suspected the identity is that of missing computer engineering grad student Gail Shipton, last seen the night before at a trendy Cambridge bar. It appears she’s been murdered, mere weeks before the trial in her $100 million lawsuit against her former financial manager, and Massachusetts Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta doubts it’s a coincidence. She also fears the case may have a connection with her computer genius niece, Lucy.
In Dust, Scarpetta and her colleagues are up against a force far more sinister than a sexual predator who fits the criminal classification of a “spectacle killer.” The murder of Gail Shipton soon leads deep into the dark world of designer drugs, drone technology, organized crime, and shocking corruption at the highest levels.

I have read every book in this series, the AndY Brazil and Win Garano series. I had hoped that this one would be better then the last two. But not to be. I feel as the writer’s bordom with the charater is showing. The books use to not have such a cookie cutter read.
Have read many of her books, this one was a total disappointment. The story line was very disconnected and it just seemed to drag on forever.
Struggled to finish.
The book dragged on and on.
