For fans of Tess Gerritsen and Kathy Reichs comes a gripping debut thriller introducing Camden's most exciting new forensic investigator.
Cassie Raven believes the dead can talk. We just need to listen . . .
People think being a mortuary technician is a seriously weird job. They can't understand why I choose to cut up dead bodies for a living. But they don't know what I know:
The dead want to tell us what happened to them.
I've eviscerated thousands of bodies, but never someone I know before - someone who meant a lot to me; someone I loved.
The pathologist says that her death was an accident.
Her body is telling me differently.

'I loved it. It was awesome! Dark humour and gore galore - Cassie Raven is my new favourite character . . . it was like Silent Witness, but much more believable' Susi Holliday
I found the single voice of the narrator reading the lines of all the characters very off putting. Some very bad accents in there! This book won’t stay with you forever- I think it would be better to read yourself but I purchased it as an audio book.
