Contrary to popular belief, much serious fighting took lace in Korea during 1951, a time typically described as a "stalemate." John Harper, a Marine veteran of World War II, was recalled to active duty in 1951 and sent to Korea. This book recalls his experiences and judgments about what he observed during this service as an infantry officer. He provides the reader with a first person view of getting to the combat zone, leading the attack, being wounded and evacuated and then returning to the front. He also tells stories of the destitution and brutality suffered by the civilian population, particularly the women, as a result of the movement of armies up and down the peninsula. Harper's keen observation and clear writing give readers a sometimes humorous, sometimes painful but always vivid insight into the realities of a war that few remember and even fewer experienced.

Dr. Kay Scarpetta is starting over with a unique private forensic pathology practice in Charleston, South Carolina. But in this thrilling #1 New York Times bestseller, her fresh start ushers in a string of murders more baffling—and terrifying—than any that have come before... The Book of the Dead is the morgue log, the ledger in which all cases are entered by hand. For Kay Scarpetta, however, it is about to acquire a new meaning. A sixteen-year-old tennis star, fresh from a tournament win Charleston, is found nude and mutilated near Piazza Navona in Rome. The body of an abused young boy is dumped in a desolate marsh. A woman is ritualistically murdered in her multimillion-dollar beach home. Meanwhile, in New England, problems with a prominent patient at a Harvard-affiliated psychiatric hospital begin to hint at interconnections among the deaths that are as hard to imagine as they are horrible. Scarpetta has dealt with many brutal and unusual crimes before, but never has she seen a string of death like what she's facing now. Before she is through, that book of the dead will contain many names—and the pen may be poised to write her own...
