About the Author:

Brooke Magnanti received a Ph.D. in Forensic Pathology from the University of Sheffield, where she studied in the Medico Legal Centre and specialised in the identification of decomposed human remains. She later worked for the NHS in child health research and cancer epidemiology, before being revealed in 2009 as the anonymous author of the award-winning blog Belle de Jour and bestselling Secret Diary of a Call Girl series of books. She lives on the West Coast of Scotland with her husband and hardly ever sees dead people any more. Visit her website at http://www.brookemagnanti.com, and follow her on Twitter @belledejour_uk

Review:

A final prospect to get the blood pumping is THE TURNING TIDE... the first crime novel from Brooke Magnanti, aka Belle de Jour. SUNDAY EXPRESS she uses her professional know-how to detail shockingly gruesome scenes at the morgue in a mystery that begins with a decomposing body in a bag in a Hebridean loch but spins a web of real-life strands of political chicanery, greed and lies galore. PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH Magnanti's writing is lively and entertaining. When her victims are laid out on that slab, her unspeakably detailed descriptions are good enough to put the wind up Patricia Cornwell. THE TIMES ...a helter-skelter of a book GUARDIAN ...this is a clever, satirical thriller from the author of the Belle De Jour books. DAILY EXPRESS
