Currently Reading - A Dissection of Murder, Felicity Young
Been looking forward to this - there's been a few local authors recently who have turned me into a historical crime fan... who would have thought!
From the Blurb:
A compelling new series about Dr Dody McCleland, the first female autopsy surgeon.
A woman. A doctor. A beastly science.
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, she must prove herself as she also proves 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 is shocked to realise that the victim was a friend of her sister - fuelling her determination to uncover the cause of the protester's suspicious death.
