Praise for the Captain Chase series
"The creator of Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta peers into space and finds just as much skullduggery there...[introducing] an equally strong, even more tormented heroine...[in] federal special agent Capt. Calli Chase." --Kirkus Reviews
"Move over, Doctor Kay Scarpetta...Quantum inaugurates a new series with a confident new heroine..." --The Telegraph
"Brilliantly crafted, gripping, and smart..." --Post Register
"Buckle up for a race to the finish that does not disappoint." --Bookreporter
"As always, Cornwell establishes time, place, and mood by expertly crafting each scene to make you feel as if you're in it." --New York Journal of Books
A Harrogate International Festivals Book of the Month Selection
"Move over, Bourne and Bond--the espionage game has a new player and Calli Chase is here to finally bring the genre into the twenty-first century." --Mystery & Suspense Magazine
About the Author
In 1990, Patricia Cornwell sold her first novel, Postmortem, while working at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond, Virginia. An auspicious debut, it went on to win the Edgar, Creasey, Anthony, and Macavity Awards as well as the French Prix du Roman d'Adventure prize--the first book ever to claim all these distinctions in a single year. Growing into an international phenomenon, the Scarpetta series won Cornwell the Sherlock Award for best detective created by an American author, the Gold Dagger Award, the RBA Thriller Award, and the Medal of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters for her contributions to literary and artistic development.
Today, Cornwell's novels and iconic characters are known around the world. Beyond the Scarpetta series, Cornwell has written the definitive nonfiction account of Jack the Ripper's identity, cookbooks, a children's book, a biography of Ruth Graham, and two other fictional series based on the characters Win Garano and Andy Brazil. While writing Quantum, the first book in the Captain Chase series, Cornwell spent two years researching space, technology, and robotics at Captain Calli Chase's home base, NASA's Langley Research Center, and studied cutting-edge law enforcement and security techniques with the Secret Service, the US Air Force, Space Force, NASA Protective Services, Scotland Yard, and Interpol.
Cornwell was born in Miami. She grew up in Montreat, North Carolina, and now lives and works in Boston and Los Angeles.

Intrigue and suspense throughout with excellent character and plot development.
Once again left on a cliffhanger and eager for the next instalment.
Patricia Cornwell is well known for the in depth research she does and it is completely evident here.
What I wasn’t expecting was how funny it was in a really subtle way.
I was really impressed and although different from her Scarpetta books, I thoroughly enjoyed this two part series.
