Paperback. See also the hardcover copy on my bookshelf.
This book appears to be the last in the Kay Scarpetta series.* It's a shame that the story here appears strained and lacking in suspense, compared to the first books featuring Dr. Scarpetta as the protagonist.
The level of suspense is not on a par with the first books; there is plenty of repetition, and the narrative rhythm is fairly uneven. I was also distracted by too many strained similes.
I wonder where Cornwell will take the characters from here; she owes it to her fans to provide a better closure than the awkward ending here.

*Trace is now out, so the Scarpetta series IS continuing.
