Dr. Kay Scarpetta, medical examiner, is on the case of a serial killer. She and/or her office is also being blamed for the leaks about the case to the media. Hard edged Officer Marino is also working on the case and believes that what Kay says is true; the leaks are not through her and they develop a kind of love/hate/friendship relationship and start working together to get the killer. The killer is increasing with his level of violence with each murder and the time span between each murder is getting shorter. They plant an article in the paper with news of new DNA evidence bringing them closer to catching the killer in hopes of tricking him into making a mistake.

Horrific rape/murders bring Marino, Scarpetta, and Benson together. This top rate crime fighting team faces limitations after suspecting an inside trader and possible murderer. Unsure of the murderer, but certain of how to draw him out, a brilliant plan to use the media proves more then helpful when the killer takes the bait.
