Set in St. Benjamin's medical school, this is about the grisly murder of Nikki Exner.
John Eisenmenger, a former forensic pathologist is determined to find out why she was murdered and to find the perpetrator.
A fast paced murder mystery with well written characters.
This was one book I couldn't put down 'til I reached the end.
I was given a digital copy of this novel by the publisher via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786712228, Hardcover)

Forensic science and law enforcement do not prove to share the same conclusions in this darkly plotted debut novel by Keith McCarthy, himself a practicing pathologist. His suspenseful and ingeniously twisted tale opens inside the walls of the venerable St. Benjamin’s Museum of Pathology, where any death would send shock waves through the academic community. But the death of Nikki Exner is far from ordinary. Not only raped and murdered, she has been grotesquely executed. That the museum employs a formerly convicted rapist and drug addict, Tim Bilroth, leads the police easily to their prime suspect, and Bilroth’s suicide while in their custody serves only to confirm his guilt. But Helena Flemming, the Bilroth family’s solicitor, is not so sure, and to help her determine Tim’s innocence, she calls upon former crack forensic pathologist John Eisenmenger. He performs a second autopsy on the victim’s drawn-and-quartered body, and his findings stand almost completely at odds with the police department’s medical examiner. As Eisenmenger and Flemming set out to discover who really killed Nikki Exner, they uncover a trail littered with drugs, blackmail, sexual favors, and suspects, and they fear that they and the police may not be on the same side.
