Book Review: Medical Thriller

As an emergency physician, I never realized how exciting the meticulous field of forensic pathology could be. This novel, co-authored by a forensic pathologist and her writer husband, shows the breadth and depth of this medical field in gutsy, graphic detail. Add a page-turning plot with tightening-spiral twists, a tough-as-nails yet vulnerable heroine, a complex cast of trustworthy (or not) supporters, plus cynical villains for whom no act is too heinous, and the hook is set all the way to the end. Readers who enjoyed Patricia Cornwell’s earlier works will relish this book.
