Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Black Notice

“Brainteasing…[a] hair-raising tale with a French twist.”—People
 
“The author’s darkest and perhaps best.”—San Francisco Examiner
 
“When [Scarpetta’s] in one of her cut-’em-up moods, you want to follow her anywhere…a series that keeps picking up velocity.”—The New York Times
 
“The forensic sequences boom with authority; the brief action sequences explode on the page…A thunderhead of disquietude hangs over this compulsively readable novel, sometimes loosing storms of suspense; but to Cornwell’s considerable credit, the unease arises ultimately not from the steady potential for violence, but from a more profound horror: the vulnerability of a good woman like Kay to a world beset by the corrupt, the cruel, the demonic.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Cornwell’s latest villain is a wonderful creation…[Her] detail-laden descriptions of autopsies, gleaned from her work experience on the staff of a Virginia chief medical examiner, offers the same kind of unique insight Tom Clancy provides concerning high-tech weaponry…Black Notice is a pleasant step forward…the villain is cracker-jack, the chase is exciting…Good for Patricia Cornwell, and even better for her many fans.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram
 
“It is fascinating to watch Scarpetta and her supporting cast…become more and more themselves…especially in such a brilliantly paced adventure as this one.”—Kirkus Reviews

Her intrepid medical examiner Kay Scarpetta first appeared on the scene in 1990 with Postmortem—the only novel to win the Edgar, Creasey, Anthony, and Macavity awards and the French Prix du Roman d'Aventure in a single year—and Cruel and Unusual, which won Britain's prestigious Gold Dagger Award for the best crime novel of 1993. Dr. Kay Scarpetta herself won the 1999 Sherlock Award for the best detective created by an American author. Ms. Cornwell's work is translated into 36 languages across more than 50 countries.

In 1990, Patricia Cornwell sold her first novel, Postmortem, while working at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond, Virginia. An auspicious debut, it went on to win the Edgar, Creasey, Anthony, and Macavity Awards as well as the French Prix du Roman d’Aventure prize—the first book ever to claim all these distinctions in a single year. Growing into an international phenomenon, the Scarpetta series won Cornwell the Sherlock Award for best detective created by an American author, the Gold Dagger Award, the RBA Thriller Award, and the Medal of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters for her contributions to literary and artistic development.

Today, Cornwell’s novels and iconic characters are known around the world. Beyond the Scarpetta series, Cornwell has written the definitive nonfiction account of Jack the Ripper’s identity, cookbooks, a children’s book, a biography of Ruth Graham, and two other fictional series based on the characters Win Garano and Andy Brazil. While writing Quantum, Cornwell spent two years researching space, technology, and robotics at Captain Calli Chase’s home base, NASA’s Langley Research Center, and studied cutting-edge law enforcement and security techniques with the Secret Service, the US Air Force, NASA Protective Services, Scotland Yard, and Interpol.

Cornwell was born in Miami. She grew up in Montreat, North Carolina, and now lives and works in Boston and Los Angeles.
