Patricia Cornwell, best known for her mysteries starring Dr. Kay Scarpetta, is launching a new series for the technological age.

The bestselling author will release Quantum in hardcover, Kindle, and audio editions in 2019.

In addition to the Scarpetta novels, Cornwell has developed two other series – one starring Detective Win Garano; the other, on reporter Andy Brazil – two cookbooks, a biography of Ruth Bell Graham (wife of evangelist Billy Graham), and, most recently, an examination of Jack the Ripper and the police force who couldn’t catch him.

You can also find her on CNN, for which she serves as a forensic consultant.

Like everybody else, please bring back the Scarpetta series. I love all the characters and loved every book in that series. Not interested in any of your other series. If you leave it any longer, people will lose interest. Please give people what they want and they will buy them. Why don't polititians and others give people what they want not what they want to give us. Big mistake. I've gone onto other novelists now.

There is no comparison to Doctor Scarpetta, and all her sidekicks. They’re bigger than life. I’ve read them all Your other books were okay. I mean no disrespect. Your one of the greatest authors. You should stay with what made you famous. One suggestion, please stop aging them. Other authors I admire aged the characters, realizes their mistake, and they stopped. It’s a mistake to continue to age, or mention their ages at this point of time. No one cares, and no one is interested in how old they are. You can write about Kay and all her sidekicks for future years to come.. My hope and wish is you bring Kay back.with all her inner circle. It’s a mistake not to.

Absolutely love Kay Scarpetta series. Patricia Cornwall is the best author and you just can’t put down her books- I keep reading thinking one more chapter and then I will go to bed but it’s very hard to put the book down. Please keep writing them because I am definitely not her only fan!!
