After working on one of the worst mass killings in US history, Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta returns home to recover, but an unsettling call drives her straight back to work.
The body of a young woman has been discovered inside the gates of MIT, draped in an unusual cloth and posed in a way that is too deliberate to be the killer's first strike. A preliminary examination reveals that the body is covered in a fine dust that under ultra-violet light flouresces blood-red, emerald-green and sapphore-blue, and physical evidence links this to another series of disturbing homicides in Washington, DC.
As she pieces together the fragments of evidence, Scarpetta and her team are drawn deeper into the dark world of designer drugs, drone technology, organised crime, and shocking corruption at the highest level.
Dust is a thrilling, addictive novel featuring one of the most iconic, original and compelling characters in crime fiction today.
