Publisher's Summary

In the beginning there were five identical murders - bodies eviscerated and organs scattered playfully around. Beverly Wharton pinned the crime on Melkior Pendred, a highly skilled and autistic mortuary assistant. Her colleague, Sergeant Homer, always believed she had caught the wrong man and that Melkior's twin, Martin, was the real killer. With Melkior dying in prison, a sixth, apparently identical murder gives Homer the perfect chance to prove his case. Martin Pendred is arrested but released on a technicality after the intervention of his solicitor, Helena Flemming. Then Martin disappears and another murder takes place. Former pathologist John Eisenmenger worked on the original murders, and his finely honed skills could make all the difference to this nerve-wracking case.


What the Critics Say

"McCarthy is a working pathologist who can also write exciting, literate prose." (Publishers Weekly)
"British pathologist with a rattling good whodunit." (Bookseller)

A gripping listen

This really was a cracking listen! Featuring John Eisenmenger and some other favourites it sort of follows on from The Secret Sleep of the Dying, expanding on the characters, continuing their stories whilst entwining a new plot line. Excellent stuff. Well written and building up to the reveal, this is another excellent book. Once again, expertly read by Sean Barrett who masters the voices wonderfully, giving them a life of their own.
The quality and pace of the recording are perfect and there are no noticeable variations along the way.
Since this is my second book I feel I am really getting the measure of
Eisenmenger and his relationships, particularly Helena and Beverley. I found this book brought more flesh to their bones and I am hoping another is available to download.

- Sue

suspense, gritty and absorbing.

I'm loving this series of books. Sorry that Helena is dying, Beverly no doubt will get her chance. The image of Martin as the villain was quite horrific and the portrayal of him by Sean Barrett a genius! Arrogant and superficial medical scholars depicted with a cutting wit and sarcasm. You never can tell who is bad, mad or quite simply evil.
