"A medical sleuth finds colving crime can be murder" A beautiful woman is viciously murdered with a common kitchen knife and Inspector Niven turns to Dr. Montrose, the victim's doctor for assistance. A good Brit mystery
From the back cover: Caroline Fraser is undeniably a beauty and knows exactly how to use her looks to get what she wants, especially when it comes to men. But this time her self-confidence forces the hand of the wrong person, and she winds up viciously murdered with a common kitchen knife. This baffling case compels Inspector Doug Niven to turn to Dr. Jean Montrose, who was Caroline's doctor and liked her very much.
Caroline aroused strong feelings in everyone who knew her, and this only makes Niven's job tougher. His growing list of suspects includes her ex-boyfriend, Brian, who couldn't accept that he'd been given the heave-ho...her brother, Marco, whose feelings for her were disturbingly unfamilial...her boss, Mac, whose interest in her was unprofessional...and the terribly jealous other secretary, Aileen. To catch the killer, Niven must investigate this uneasy set of relationships. But when his prime suspect is gruesomely murdered, he once again calls on Dr. Jean Montrose, whose expert medical knowledge and understanding of human nature are desperately needed to unravel the web of deceit and death.
Dr. Jean Montrose helps solve crimes in Perth, Scotland.
