Summary

In the wake of several unexpected deaths at the hospital, Dr Claire Woodforde suspects there is a killer amongst the staff. 

As Detective Chief Inspector Beverley Wharton and her new sergeant, Tom Bayes, begin to investigate, they too start to wonder if the deaths were natural or whether someone helped them along. But as they start to make headway, something much more sinister comes to light. 

A body is found in an empty house. A body without its limbs - and head. Dr John Eisenmenger is tasked with examining the torso to uncover clues which will lead to its identity and cause of death - a grisly job even for the most hardened of pathologists.

Nice to have you back Dr John Eisenmenger

I have always enjoyed this series and found them to be an entertaining read. The usual macabre murders interspersed with relationships and mistakes. This was, I feel, probably the worst of the series overall however it was rescued by the supreme narration from Sean Barrett

Review Keep before Killing

The narrator had the MOST boring voice ever!!! Hard to keep attentive. The story dragged and was not intriguing. I kept skipping parts of chapters. Don’t waste your credit!!!
