Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The start of a new series with a freelance forensic pathologist, Anya Crichton, as its star and a great deal of medical detail which, for me, slowed down the pace. Itâs a tale littered with suicides and the real fascination, I found, was how the women were persuaded to kill themselves. I shall be most interested to see how the series progresses.

Comparison: Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cornwell, Karen Slaughter.
Similar this month: Laura Lippman, Michael Connelly.

Synopsis

Malicious Intent by Kathryn Fox

Dr Anya Crichton, a pathologist and forensic physician, finds that work is sparse for the only female freelancer in the field. Between paying child support, a mortgage and struggling to get her business off the ground, Anya can't yet afford to fight her ex-husband for custody of their three-year-old son, Ben. When Anya is asked to look into the seemingly innocent suicide of a teenager, Anya notices similarities between the girl's death and several other cases she is working on with her friend and colleague, Detective Sergeant Kate Farrer. All the victims went missing for a period of time, only to be found dead of apparent suicide in most unusual circumstances. As Anya delves deeper, the pathological findings point to the frightening possibility that the deaths are not only linked, but part of a sinister plot. Nothing can prepare her for the terrifying truth...

Reviews

Kathryn Fox has created a forensic physician who readers of Patricia Cornwell will adore James Patterson Much better than anything Cornwell has written lately, and much superior to anything Reichs has ever written ... deeply satisfying. A new talent to watch Australian Book Review Will keep you gripped from start to finish...break-neck plots...fascinating medical and police procedural details ... What a compelling new talent! Jeffery Deaver It's a wonderful moment when you track down something that's really worth reading... Gripping from its very first page, it carries you breathlessly through its deftly plotted twists and turns Australian Vogue MALICIOUS INTENT is top-notch in its genre Sunday Telegraph (Australia) Fox is stomach-churningly good...
