THE LAST PRECINCT
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense
Kay Scarpetta is a physical and emotional wreck. Still reeling from the murder of her lover Benton Wesley, Kay has been physically injured in a battle with Jean Baptiste Chandonne, the werewolf killer. The battle has left Kay with an injured arm and the killer blinded by acid.
Kay wants Chandonne prosecuted and put away permanently but politics stand in the way. Chandonne is a member of a powerful French crime family and the family will stop at nothing to free him, even accusing Kay of being the aggressor in the showdown. Then the New York DAs finds merit in the rumors and begins investigating Kay. With her world falling apart and her job on the line, Kay finds herself fighting a battle that will change her life forever, no matter the outcome.
Bound to hit the bestseller charts, THE LAST PRECINCT is a triumphant thrill ride. The suspense crackles and the story moves along at a breakneck pace. New readers should note, though, that this book is closely connected with the previous volume in the series. (Nov., 464 pp., $26.95)
