Antidote to Murder

(2013)
(The second book in the Doctor Dody McCleland series)
A novel by

 
In the scorching summer of 1911, London is a hotbed of political activity as women fight for their equality and Germany starts to pose a dangerous threat. But Dody McCleland, England's first female autopsy surgeon, has more immediate concerns - such as finding out who's trying to frame her for murder...

A distraught scullery maid appears at Dody's Women's Clinic begging for an abortion. It turns out she has a case of lead poisoning, which Dody believes she took to induce a miscarriage. Instead of reporting the girl to the authorities, Dody decides to council her and prescribes an antidote. But days later, the maid is found dead from a bungled criminal abortion - and the coroner receives a series of anonymous letters accusing Dody of the crime.

Now, Dody has to find out who has framed her for the maid's murder - or else she'll be embroiled in a criminal trial. Chief Inspector Pike is working undercover on another case, playing the piano for an exotic dancer who may be spying for the Germans, but when he hears Dody's in trouble, he insists on lending a hand. But as Pike and Dody are about to discover, she's not only fighting for her career, but for her life, too...
