Annotation
Home in Cambridge, MA, medical examiner Kay Scarpetta must deal with the murder of a female grad student from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology whose body is found wrapped in linen and carefully posed on the rugby field. Strange how this case resembles one that Scarpettas FBI husband is handling in Washington, DC.
