Forensic pathologist Dr. Anya Crichton is working hard to pay child support, get her business going, and battle for custody of her three-year-old son. The drug overdose of a young Lebanese girl pulls her into a series of unrelated suicides that must be investigated before other crimes occur. Very interesting medical details and the Australian background adds a lot.
Several women who apparently committed suicide are linked by a strange fiber in their lungs. As Dr Anya Crichton pursues the investigation, she finds more links between the women. What began as an attempt to identify a substance potentially hazardous to public health turns into a hunt for a diabolical killer. I enjoyed the strong female characters - Anya, detective Kate Farrer, Anya's assistant Elaine and the ambitious student Zara. There's plenty of forensic detail and taut psychological suspense. Every time I tried to put the book down, I was drawn back to it, and finished it in one day. I'm looking forward to more in this series.
Enjoyed this new author,book kept me guessing.
