Black Notice by Patricia Cornwell

Book : Black Notice

Author : Patricia Cornwell

Published : 1999

Synopsis : Dr Scarpetta and Marino find a body in a container arriving from Belgium.The body turns out to be of a member of one of the richest and oldest families of Paris. There is a rumour that this family has got a son with a rare disease is believed to have committed several murders.The postmortem of the found body is performed by the Chief Medical Examiner, Kay Scarpetta, she sets forth on a mission that could ruin her career and put her directly in harm's way and places her and those she holds dear at mortal risk.

The book kept my attention throughout but the ending was somewhat abrupt. This is probably one of the weakest of Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta series books but it's still a decent story.
