9780060857950: Malicious Intent: A Novel

A gripping and powerful new thriller -- the debut of a stunning new voice in suspense fiction -- and the first appearance of a tough and remarkable investigator, pathologist, and forensic physician, Dr. Anya Crichton.

The only female freelancer in the male-dominated field, pathologist Dr. Anya Crichton will take any work she can find to pay child support and her mortgage, get her new business off the ground, and battle her ex-husband for custody of their three-year-old son. Things turn around rapidly, however, when her expert forensic evidence is instrumental in winning a high-profile case -- and new work offers start pouring in.

But Anya's investigation into the drug overdose of a young Lebanese girl is raising troubling questions. Startling coincidences between this sad and tragic death and a series of seemingly unrelated suicides that Anya is also examining at the urging of her friend and colleague, detective sergeant Kate Farrer, suggest that there's a monumental evil at work in the shadows. With each scalpel cut, Anya Crichton's forensic prowess and deductive brilliance are pulling her relentlessly toward a sinister plot and a devastating truth -- and once she enters the lethal darkness, she may never again see the light of day.

About the Author:

Kathryn Fox is a medical practitioner with a special interest in forensic medicine. Her bestselling debut novel, Malicious Intent, received international acclaim and was awarded the Davitt Award for adult fiction. Kathryn currently lives in Sydney, Australia.

From Booklist:

Australian Anya Chrichton, a relative newcomer to the ranks of forensic detectives, has a three-year-old son, Ben, who is the light of her life. Unfortunately, court-appointed weekends with Ben are threatened by the whims of her ex, whom she supports by working as a forensic specialist for private clients. When Anoub Deab shows up demanding that she investigate his sister's death, she agrees, though she insists she's not a detective. That's just what she turns out to be, however, after discovering eerie forensic similarities between Deab's sister and several other, very different women. Is there a serial killer on the loose? As Anya pursues the answers, someone begins a campaign of harassment that calls up memories of a family tragedy involving her own sister. A delicious buildup of clues and plenty of gruesome details will please genre devotes, as will the satisfying outcome, which is likely to surprise even a few seasoned thriller fans. Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs--move over. Stephanie Zvirin
