Ignites on the first page...Cornwell twists escalating violence, unrelenting tension, and growing paranoia into a thick rope of horror and unfolding conspiracy. No one depicts the human capability for evil better than she...Cornwell has created a character so real, so compelling, so driven that this reader has to remind herself regularly that Scarpetta is just a product of an author's imagination.-- "USA Today"
Plots within plots, fraught atmosphere, and unrelenting suspense keep readers on tenterhooks while one trap after another springs under unwary feet. Cunningly designed, ingeniously laid out, composed with Cornwellian skill, this far-from-the-last precinct is a model of the art.-- "Los Angeles Times"
The most unexpected of the Kay Scarpetta novels so far...The Last Precinct unfolds deliberately, keeping you in the dark along with Scarpetta so that when the revelations dawn, you're almost reeling, too. The overwhelming feeling, though, is that Cornwell has the series on the verge of spinning off in a thrilling new direction. The Last Precinct may just be a terrific first step toward something even more exhilarating.-- "Miami Herald"
One of Ms. Cornwell's better novels...There are surprises and unexpected plot twists...A page-turner that will engage, surprise, and engross readers to the final page.-- "Richmond Times-Dispatch"
