“Mr. Kendall, in the past few months there have been a number of doctors who have mysteriously disappeared, or whose deaths were either alleged to be accidents, or were suicides, or they were actually murdered.” Kendall made a mental note to find out about these "other doctors". “A number of doctors you said. How many are we talking about?” Mrs. Eaton thought for a few moments. “To my knowledge there have been at least eight cases in the past six months. There may be a whole lot more that I know nothing about.”

Claudia Rose, Zebediah Gold, and Joel Jovanic of the Forensic Handwriting Mystery series play an important role in unraveling the web of mystery.

In the dead of winter, handwriting expert Claudia Rose journeys to Maine to retrieve a manuscript about convicted female serial killer, Roxanne Becker. The manuscript, written by Professor Madeleine Maynard, who was, herself, brutally murdered, exposes a shocking secret: explosive research about a group of mentally unstable grad students selected for a special project and dubbed “Maynard’s Maniacs”. Was Madeleine conducting research that was at best, unprofessional - and at worst, downright harmful and potentially dangerous? Could that unorthodox research have turned deadly?

: This book is Mystery-Thriller at its best; it has drama, thrilling adventure, suspense, danger, science, and more! It’s a fast-paced, captivating read. I will read anything from Shelia Lowe so when I saw she has audio books now it was a no brainer, I had to have it! Narration is wonderful just what I had imagined Claudia Rose to sound like ..!

Highly recommend this book to anyone!

I never heard about Herb Baumeister before..but I tore through this book, and audio book in two days , it was that good! Ryan Green is relatively new on the Truth Crime scene genre, but he gives in-depth accounts from the victims perspective.. I highly recommend You Think You Know Me and all his other books as well.. you will not be disappointed!!
