Era(s): contemporary

A wily doctor goes out on a limb to find a killer…

Two elderly people passing is an unremarkable occurrence in the British seaside town of Hastings, and certainly not unusual for police doctor and medical examiner Callie Hughes.

But what bothers her inquisitive nature is that both individuals had recently packed a suitcase. Not the obvious actions of those with one foot in the grave.

Exploring further, Callie’s colleagues find irregularities in the bloods of one of the deceased, but having been cremated, the other individual is beyond reach.

Her concerns dismissed by the obstructive, former romantic interest, DI Steve Miller, who can see no link between the deaths, Callie is side-lined and left to deal with a new trainee at the surgery who is proving hard to handle.

If only Callie would rest her case, things might work out. But she is convinced a killer is out there, and won’t stop nosing until she proves it.

DEADLY REMEDIES is the fifth murder mystery by Candy Denman about female sleuth, pathologist Dr Callie Hughes. The full list of books in this series is available FREE with Kindle Unlimited and in paperback from Amazon.
