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....

Seeing things from a different angle
A good mystery story that has a new perspective, and a different main character that you are never too sure of his intentions.
An interesting plot, good characters, some dark humour and different settings that add to the story.
I am a little bit jaded murder mysteries, so that is the weak part for me, but if you read only a few books per year, this would be perfectly acceptable.

I enjoyed this story on the whole, with its main character being an Aspergers man, I felt that most of the time his reactions were as true to life as was probable, but I was a trifle dismayed to hear him being discussed as being 'disabled'. I liked Patrick and his odd ways, the way that he coped with college life was well told.
The mother was also a bit strange, but I suppose that was relevant to the story.
All in all I enjoyed this book and finished it in one day. Will look for more by this author.
