Her most recent bestsellers include Port Mortuary, The Scarpetta Factor, Scarpetta and The Front. Her earlier works include Postmortem — the only novel to win five major crime awards in a single year — and Cruel and Unusual, which won the coveted Gold Dagger award in 1993. Dr. Kay Scarpetta herself won the 1999 Sherlock Award for the best detective created by an American writer. In 2011 she was awarded the Medal of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters, one of France’s most prestigious awards to honour those who have distinguished themselves in the domains of art or literature, or by their contribution to the development of culture in France and throughout the world.
