Dublin, Ireland and Richmond, Virginia: separated by thousands of
miles - linked by murder. For Dr. Kay Scarpetta a lecture stint in Ireland
provides the perfect opportunity to find out if the murders on both sides
of the Atlantic are indeed connected. Five dismembered and beheaded bodies
were found in Ireland years ago - now four have been discovered in the States.
But the tenth corpse in Virginia is different. There are vital
discrepancies, and an indication that the elderly victim was already
seriously ill. A copy-cat killing. Ghoulish, perhaps, but not unusual.
And then abject terror grips Scarpetta and her colleagues when the next
body is found. The circumstances of death broadcast a clear and horrifying
message: the killer is armed with the most lethal weapon on earth - smallpox.
