Praise for Black Notice

“Brainteasing…[a] hair-raising tale with a French twist.”—People
“The author’s darkest and perhaps best.”—San Francisco Examiner
“When [Scarpetta’s] in one of her cut-’em-up moods, you want to follow her anywhere…a series that keeps picking up velocity.”—The New York Times
“The forensic sequences boom with authority; the brief action sequences explode on the page…A thunderhead of disquietude hangs over this compulsively readable novel, sometimes loosing storms of suspense; but to Cornwell’s considerable credit, the unease arises ultimately not from the steady potential for violence, but from a more profound horror: the vulnerability of a good woman like Kay to a world beset by the corrupt, the cruel, the demonic.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Cornwell’s latest villain is a wonderful creation…[Her] detail-laden descriptions of autopsies, gleaned from her work experience on the staff of a Virginia chief medical examiner, offers the same kind of unique insight Tom Clancy provides concerning high-tech weaponry…Black Notice is a pleasant step forward…the villain is cracker-jack, the chase is exciting…Good for Patricia Cornwell, and even better for her many fans.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“It is fascinating to watch Scarpetta and her supporting cast…become more and more themselves…especially in such a brilliantly paced adventure as this one.”—Kirkus Reviews
