A Fatal CutMedical Mysteries
'His patient was ready. He stood for a moment, staring down at her, his mind working out the correct incision. Then the first cut...'
A body has been discovered in undergrowth in the grounds of Birmingham hospital, wrapped in a clinical waste bag and, even more bizarrely, wearing little but a garish Disney tie.
The scar and stitches evident on the dead man's groin suggest he may recently have been a patient at the hospital.
But when pathologist Karys Harper is brought in to examine the body she makes a discovery that is more grotesque still.
For the surgery wound was inflicted after death.
Clearly this is no ordinary killer – and he's about to strike again.
As the 'surgeon' continues to carry out his operations, can frustated Detective Inspector Forrest piece together the clues – which are few and far between – and track this medical murderer down?
Or will his next patient be someone close to Forrest's heart?
'A Fatal Cut' is a chilling medical thriller that is perfect for fans of Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs.
