Red Mist

This is an okay book written by Patricia Cornwell. Chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta is driving through Savannah’s low country, on her way to the Georgia Prison for Women. She has agreed to meet with an inmate there, a convicted sex offender and the mother of a diabolically brilliant killer. Against the advice of her FBI criminal intelligence agent husband, Benton Wesley, Scarpetta is determined to hear this woman out, and to continue on her quest to find out exactly what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months before.

The author is a descendant of abolitionist Harriet B. Stowe, known for her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin written in 1852. Since childhood, Cornwell has been friends with the family of the Reverend Billy Graham and his wife Ruth Bell. This is the 19th novel in the series.
