Publisher's Summary

Helena Flemming has fallen out of love with John Eisenmenger and wants their relationship to end. Eisenmenger is devastated and finds solace in returning to his life as a forensic pathologist. His first case reunites him with DI Beverley Wharton; a young petty criminal is found stabbed and the obvious suspect is a man who had threatened to kill him just hours before. There is pressure on Beverley to close the case. However, she is not so keen to follow orders, especially when Eisenmenger discovers that the weapon is a surgical scalpel. With all this going on, the accidental death of a motorcyclist seems trivial, except that the body has one too many organs…

    "Grossly Underrated"

    This book is an excellent addition to the series. Narration is "spot on." The whole series would rate five stars as the sum of its parts is grater than its whole (I've given the each of other books 4 stars as I have here). If you enjoy English murder mysteries, try this series.

    "Stop persecuting Eisenmenger!"

    In this book I feel that McCarthy is getting bored with his creations. I have absolutely no problem with any fate that befalls the astoundingly tedious Helena but does he have to persecute poor blameless John so relentlessly and where is Beverly's vicious wit?
    An excellent plot but tying Helena into it personally stretched credibility too far. He should have consulted me, I can think of myriad ways to deal with her!
    I will promptly download the next one though .

    "Good, if a little predictable"

    It's a little disappointing really, simply because of its predictability. A decent enough storyline, I did think there would be a bit of a twist towards the end but it never came. The whole premise was obvious from the start. Excellently read by the great Sean Barrett as usual.
