BOOK REVIEW: MALICIOUS INTENT
Dr. Anya Crichton has a very interesting job. She is the only female freelancer working as a pathologist and forensic physician. Anya has several problems of her own right now including trying to get her business going and a hard time paying child support and her mortgage. She is also trying to save enough money to win a custody battle with her ex-husband.
Things soon start to turn around for Anya when her expert forensic evidence helps win a high profile case and numerous offers start rolling in. Anya helps a lawyer, Dan Brody, investigate the death of a young Lebanese girl. At the time, the case appears to be a drug overdose. Anya discovers some fibers in the woman's lungs. Several other suicides of women begin to occur. Anya soon discovers the same fibers in their lungs. What is going on? The deaths don't seem to be related but Anya is convinced something is not right. To make matters worse, someone out there is determined to stop Anya from investigating these deaths.
Will Anya be able to solve these murders before someone gets to her?
The first ten pages or so started off a little slow for me but once I got past this point, the book really picked up at a fast pace and turned into an exciting thriller. The reader will be kept guessing throughout the book. The author, Kathryn Fox, adds a personal touch to the book because she is a general practitioner with a special interest in forensic medicine. She has also created a very likeable character with Dr. Crichton who doesn't let her personal problems interfere with doing an expert job. This book is highly recommended and we look forward to the next book by Kathryn Fox.
