Overview

At the turn of the twentieth century, London’s political climate is in turmoil, as women fight for the right to vote. Dody McCleland has her own battles to fight. As England’s first female autopsy surgeon, not only must she prove herself, she must prove that murder treats everyone equally…
 
After a heated women’s rights rally turns violent, an innocent suffragette is found murdered. When she examines the body, Dody McCleland is shocked to realize that the victim was a friend of her sister—fueling her determination to uncover the cause of the protestor’s suspicious death.
 
For Dody, gathering clues from a body is often easier than handling the living—especially Chief Detective Inspector Pike. Pike is looking to get to the bottom of this case but has a hard time trusting anyone—including Dody. Determined to earn Pike’s trust and to find the killer, Dody will have to sort through real and imagined secrets. But if she’s not careful, she may end up on her own examination table…

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fans of Maureen Jennings’s Murdoch novels will welcome Australian author Young’s promising debut, inspired by an actual riot in 1910 London. When the police brutally break up a suffragette rally, Lady Catherine Cartwright ends up dead amid the chaos. Her allies are convinced it was murder, while the authorities are eager to pass it off as an accident. That places Dr. Dody McCleland, just back from training in Scotland to serve as an assistant to the legendary Dr. Bernard Spilsbury, between a rock and a hard place. While her personal connection with the victim precludes conducting the autopsy herself, she isn’t satisfied by its conclusion. Dody’s quest for the truth leads her to an unlikely ally, Det. Chief Insp. Matthew Pike, who lost his wife to a Fenian bombing. While Young telegraphs some of the plot’s non-whodunit aspects, she delivers a truly surprising reveal of the murderer’s identity. Agent: Lisa Grubka, Foundry Literary + Media. (May)
