(Dr. Anya Crichton, #6)
Cold Grave is my fourth of the Doctor Anya Crichton series written by Kathryn Fox. The title of this book had me thinking it had something to do with cemeteries. Not so!
A family cruise couldn’t be further away from my thoughts. Then how can anything happen on a family friendly cruise?
It does! And on the first day, no less.
Anya, her ex-husband and their son are on a cruise, when hubby is involved in finding the first victim’s body. That of a pretty young nineteen year old girl. Anya also decides to help out and puts her forensic skills to good use.
In my mind the possible culprits are soon revealed. An investigation which follows is bungled and we are left wondering who is responsible for the bungle? The ex-cop shipboard security chief or someone else?
Cold Grave has all the usual twists and turns expected in a book of this genre. The story is a bit Perry Mason(ish) with some of the details being ‘off-screen’ and only heard about during the ‘rescue’.
However, it is still a good read, or listen, as the case may be. I am sure fans of Kathryn Fox and this genre of books will enjoy Cold Grave as I did.
As usual I must mention narrator, Jennifer Vuletic who has done an excellent job of creating life-like characters.
