This book was ok until the sanctimonious Kate decided to stitch up a fellow cop for doing what needed to be done. Someone should actually have kilked that entire family and received a medal for it. Apparently Australian "justice" is just as ineffective and lily-livered as the British.

So much action, twists, and turns. I could not put it down. Looking forward to the next one in the series. Dr. Anya Crichton and Dan Brow are my favirite two characters. At some point I would love to see them together with all the soarks they share. Very impressed with this author, that I found by shear accident. Always a great storyline.

I have read all four of Kathryn Fox's books and this new one is her best. A young author, Ms. Fox has a character like Temperance from Kathy Reichs. She has a broken marriage and a young son, Ben. Out in the field she is a compassinate doctor who, in this book, cares for patients who have been raped and savagely attached. I think she is getting better as a writer in each book and would recommend her to any mystery reader.

This is Kathryn Fox's fourth novel. Bloodborn propels along at a fantastic speed, with barely time for a `coffee break'. Right from the start, the reader is plunged into the world of Dr Anya Crichton, forensic pathologist, with its gruesome and shocking crime scene. Fox's plot is tightly written, without padding and reference to previous works in the series, which makes for a wonderful independent read. Where other mystery/thriller authors rehash previous material, this book is, for lack of a better term -devilishly refreshing. Sublime morality, qwirky twists along the way and personable characters is what I love about her books. This is a superb thriller, and I eagerly await her next.

Kathryn Fox delivers another great 'reality' fiction novel. For me what makes all Fox novels so captivating is the chilling reality that victims, like the characters in her books, come to life based on her knowledge and experiences first hand as a general practitioner.
