The Lazy Eye Murder

Free sample

Four friends grew up in Tel-Aviv practically inseparable from the time they were toddlers. They wore matching blue-and-white school outfits, marched in line to plant trees, were drafted together into the military, and kept in touch throughout the years.


Wildly successful Dr. Eddie Berliner—a celebrity plastic surgeon, restaurateur, and TV personality—and the most colorful of the bunch, invites his friends for the launch of his fancy new spa. After an all-night feast, a scream is heard at dawn. Eddie’s body is discovered hanging inside the hamam, the door locked from inside, a suicide note appearing on his computer. However, the evidence soon indicates murder and Dr. Uzi Vardimon is the prime suspect.

Pressure from above could force Captain Ramzi Issa and Sergeant Rona Pizanti to close the case, but Uzi’s wife Lily, a renowned scientist, begins an investigation of her own. Searching for the truth, the tenacious Lily endangers her own life and discovers another murder victim. Eventually she unveils a dreadful, 40-year-old secret that has turned a once-close friend into a cold-blooded murderer.

Book 24
#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell returns with the remarkable twenty-fourth thriller in her popular high-stakes series starring medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta.

In the quiet of twilight, on an early autumn day, twenty-six-year-old Elisa Vandersteel is killed while riding her bicycle along the Charles River. It appears she was struck by lightning—except the weather is perfectly clear with not a cloud in sight. Dr. Kay Scarpetta, the Cambridge Forensic Center’s director and chief, decides at the scene that this is no accidental Act of God.

Her investigation becomes complicated when she begins receiving a flurry of bizarre poems from an anonymous cyberbully who calls himself Tailend Charlie. Though subsequent lab results support Scarpetta’s conclusions, the threatening messages don’t stop. When the tenth poem arrives exactly twenty-four hours after Elisa’s death, Scarpetta begins to suspect the harasser is involved, and sounds the alarm to her investigative partner Pete Marino and her husband, FBI analyst Benton Wesley.

She also enlists the help of her niece, Lucy. But to Scarpetta’s surprise, tracking the slippery Tailend Charlie is nearly impossible, even for someone as brilliant as her niece. Also, Lucy can’t explain how this anonymous nemesis could have access to private information. To make matters worse, a venomous media is whipping the public into a frenzy, questioning the seasoned forensics chief’s judgment and "a quack cause of death on a par with spontaneous combustion."
