Set in Edwardian London, this fantastic mystery series features Britain's first female autopsy surgeon. When an act of compassion misfires, autopsy surgeon Dr Dody McCleland must fight not only for her career, but also for her life. The body of a scullery maid is discovered in her room. When it emerges that she had recently begged Dody to terminate an unwanted pregnancy, the coroner recommends Dody be tried for criminal abortion causing death. Meanwhile, the one man who might be able to help her, Chief Inspector Matthew Pike, is nowhere to be found. After another woman's body is discovered bearing all the hallmarks of the same crime, Dody suspects that a rogue doctor is on the loose. Amid the turbulence of Edwardian London with its mix of strikes, suffragettes, German spies, exotic dancers and an illicit drug trade, Dody must unmask the killer before more girls are butchered and her own life ends on the gallows.Praise for the Dr Dody McCleland mysteries: 'The elegant writing, pacing and characterisation of the novel reflect the period, with] some chilling and graphic moments as the story heads to its satisfying conclusion' West Australian 'Cannily blending the forensic thriller with historical crime ... plus an] endearingly eccentric heroine ...More please, Ms Young, and soon' Sunday Age 'This satisfying blend of history, forensics and crime is the first of a compelling new series' Woman's Day
