Dr. Kay Scarpetta is up against a serial killer who targets young lovers. Four couples have disappeared, only to turn up dead months afterward... Now a 5th pair is missing, and the mother of the girl is a powerhouse recently named by the president to head his war on drugs. Battling political pressure as well as a murderer, Scarpetta uses a microscope in her forensic lab the way Sherlock Holmes wielded a magnifying glass.
