Postmortem is the first book of the Dr. Kay Scarpetta series by author Patricia Cornwell. It received the 1991 Edgar Award for Best First Novel.
Four women with nothing in common, united only in death. Four brutalized victims of a brilliant monster - a "Mr. Nobody", moving undetected through a paralyzed city, leaving behind a gruesome trail of carnage... but few clues. With skilled hands, an unerring eye, and the latest advances in forensic research, an unrelenting female medical examiner -- Dr. Kay Scarpetta -- is determined to unmask a maniac. But someone is trying to sabotage Kay's investigation from the inside. And worse yet, someone wants her dead...
Patricia Cornwell received the Edgar, Creasey, Anthony and Macavity Awards and the French Prix du Roman d'Adventure for Postmortem, the first author to do so in a single year.
This book was published in 1991. I am not a professional book grader but I would consider this book to be in acceptable condition. The cover is intact as are all the pages. The cover does have a crease in the lower right hand corner, there are several creases in the spine. I would consider this to be a good reading copy and great as a filler for any Patricia Cornwell collection.
