A Fatal Cut

A Fatal Cut

Medical 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.
