Cause of Death
by Patricia Cornwell

The 7th crime novel told by Kay Scarpetta. It is a page turner. Lots of action in Virginia. Members of a cult take over a nuclear power plant with the help of the CEO of CP&L and a local police detective and captain to sell plutonium to Libya. They kill Scarpetta’s assistant and a reporter to silence them. Scarpetta’s niece Lucy plays a major role in capturing the terrorists. Lucy drives Scarpetta crazy with worry just like Scarpetta drives police captain Pete Marino crazy. Scarpetta continues to fuck married FBI man Wesley Benton.

Year Read: 2005
