Black Notice

While Lucy Fairnelli goes undercover in Miami to bring down a notorious criminal cartel, Dr. Kay Scarpetta and Pete Marino discover a body in a cargo ship recently arrived from Belgium at Virginia's Deep Water Terminal in Richmond. Initially it seems as though it may be the decomposed remains of a stowaway, but Scarpetta's post mortem reveals neither a cause of death nor an identification. So the victim's personal effects and an odd tattoo take Scarpetta on a hunt for information that eventually leads her and Marino to Interpol's headquarters in Lyon.

At first the highly confidential information they receive seem incredible, a bizarre trail of conspiracy and deceit, but inexorably the facts reveal a web of privileged and criminal arrogance which puts Dr. Kay Scarpetta directly in harm's way, and places her and those she holds dear at mortal risk.
