THE ANATOMY OF DEATH is set in London at the turn of the twentieth century during the tenuous fight for women’s right to vote.

Dody McCleland is England’s first female autopsy surgeon. When a women’s rights rally turns violent, Dody must solve the murder of an innocent suffragette while proving herself professionally to her male counterparts. Discovering the victim is a friend of her sister, Dody is even more determined to uncover the cause of this suspicious death. Chief Detective Inspector Pike joins the investigation but finds it difficult to trust anyone—including Dody. Amidst the turbulent political climate of London, Dody is determined to find the woman’s killer while working to gain Pike’s approval. She must be careful which gender she chooses to side with, as accusations quickly follow.
