(A book in the Kay Scarpetta series)
An omnibus of novels by

CRUEL AND UNUSUAL Two seemingly unrelated events occur one cold night in December; convicted murderer Ronnie Joe Waddell is pronounced dead in the electric chair and the wounded body of a young boy is found propped against a rubbish skip. But when Scarpetta recalls that the body of Waddell's victim had been arranged in a similar position, these two events don't seem quite so unrelated...

THE BODY FARM The discovery of the corpse of a young girl sends shock waves through a sleepy little town in North Carolina. Dr Kay Scarpetta is called in but the apparent simplicity of the case proves something of a poisoned chalice - until Scarpetta finds enlightenment through the curious pathologists' playground known as the Body Farm...

FROM POTTER'S FIELD A female body is found in New York's Central Park and it seems to be the work of Temple Brooks Gault, Scarpetta's nemesis. With help from her colleagues Marino and Wesley, Scarpetta must track this most dangerous of killers, in pursuit of survival as well as justice...
