Winner of the Theakston's Crime Award 2014
The dead can't speak to us,” Professor Madoc had said. But that was a lie. Sometimes, only an outsider can get to the truth. Patrick had been on the outside all his life. Thoughtful, but different, infuriating even to his own mother, his life changes when he follows an obsession with death to study anatomy at university. When he uncovers a crime that everybody else was too close to see, he proves finally that he has been right all along: Nothing is exactly as it seems. And there have been many more lies closer to home....

Good but -Takes a While to Get Going.
Yes but with a warning that they'll need a strong stomach to withstand the detailed postmortem passages and there's lots of them! Belinda Bauer novels are, almost by definition, very rich in detailed characterisations and background information and that's what makes them stand out from the rest. In this novel all the action really takes place in the second half but some of it is pretty unexpected and worth waiting for.
I've read a couple of her novels before and yes indeed she has her place on my list.
Excellent narrator. Entirely competent and very, very engaging to listen to. I'll definitely keep an eye out for more done by him.
Yes. It was definitely worth the stomach-churning moments in the 'lab' and the wait for the plot to unwind.
A novel with the usual Belinda Bauer seal of 'different from the rest'. This is no run-of-the-mill thriller and as you'll hear.....no run-of-the mill hero either!. This guy is SO refreshingly different and his directness will give you more than a few smiles. Great stuff because he can get away it too!
