11:05 p.m. Convicted murder Ronnie Joe Waddell is

pronounced dead at the Commonwealth of Virginia's

electric chair.

Waddell's death isn't the only newsworthy event

on this cold December night. Three hours after

thirteen-year-old Eddie Heath goes out to a

convenience store to buy a can of soup, his nude,

grotesquely wounded body is found propped

against a dumpster,

Waddell's execution, the attack on Eddie--the

two events seem unrelated until Scarpetta and

Richmond police lieutenant Pete Marino remember

that Waddell arranged his victim in a strikingly

similar position to Eddie's. And then there's a new

murder, the most puzzling of all.

This is a hardback book.
