A Feast of Carrion

(2003)
(The first book in the Eisenmenger-Flemming Forensic Mysteries series)
A novel by

 
 
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.
