Synopsis of Cause of Death

An investigative reporter is found dead in Virginia’s icy waters …

New Year’s Eve and the final murder scene of Virginia’s bloodiest year takes Scarpetta thirty feet below the Elizabeth River’s icy surface.

A diver, Ted Eddings, is dead, an investigative reporter who was a favourite at the Medical Examiner’s office.

Was Eddings probing the frigid depths of the Inactive Shipyard for a story, or simply diving for sunken trinkets?

And why did Scarpetta receive a phone call from someone reporting the death before the police were notified?

The case envelops Scarpetta, her niece Lucy, and police captain Pete Marino in a world where both cutting-edge technology and old-fashioned detective work are critical offensive weapons.

Together they follow the trail of death to a well of violence as dark and forbidding as water that swirled over Ted Eddings.
