Body Language: 'Spellbinding storytelling' Val McDermid by A. K. Turner

'Spellbinding storytelling' Val McDermid 'A first-rate crime novel . . . I loved it' Elly Griffiths 'One of the best series openers I've read in years' Jane Casey 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. ****AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER IN EBOOK, PAPERBACK AND AUDIOBOOK**** Praise for Body Language: 'What a wonderful creation is Cassie Raven!
