The fifth in the Dody McCleland series - murder, investigation, women's rights and some crossroads for both McCleland and Pike.

From the Blurb:

The fifth in the Dr Dodi McCleland series - Agatha Christie meets Phryne Fisher

I'm an idiot and I'm now two books from different series by author Felicity Young behind. So last night I tossed a coin to decide which one comes first - Flare-Up it is, to be followed closely by A Donation of Murder.

From the Blurb:

Outback murders, dodgy thieves, organised crime and arson - a small outback community is crackling with nerves, as Cam Fraser investigates.

Didn't get a heap of reading done over the weekend (went to see The Dressmaker yesterday which took a big chunk out of the day), but I did start this one last night.

From the Blurb:

You can run from everything but your fears.

Three years after a gang brutally murdered his wife and son, Sergeant Cam Fraser has returned with his daughter Ruby to the country town where he was raised - a town too small for trouble. But then a body is found on the school grounds, badly burned and unrecognisable. Who in Glenroyd could possibly be a murderer? And why?

Been looking forward to this one immensely. Readers who haven't discovered this series yet - can't recommend it highly enough. For review at http://newtownreviewofbooks.com.au(link is external)

From the Blurb:

The fourth engrossing mystery in the acclaimed Dr Dody McCleland series, featuring Britain's first female autopsy surgeon.

Karen Chisholm

Third book in the extremely excellent Dr Dody McCleland series which combines strong plots, good characters, a touch of romantic attraction and a good strong dose of the reality of life for women in the Suffragette era.

From the Blurb:

'If a black dog appears along the old corpse way, the route a funeral procession takes to the churchyard, it is thought to be escorting the dead soul to the afterlife. A black dog sighting without a funeral procession, however, is supposed to foreshadow death.'
