Elizabeth has narrated all of the books in the series so far, and will be narrating the next two – Murder at Kensington Gardens and Murder at St. George’s Church – later this year.

Cadavers can be deadly…

Unregistered corpses are showing up among the cadavers in the mortuary of the London School of Medicine for Women. Unnatural deaths. Murders. The first known victim is recognized by Haley Higgins, a third-year pathology student. War-widow fashionista Ginger Gold feels a responsibility for the man’s death and is determined to find his killer.

Her pursuit takes her into the dangerous realm of the famous Italian gangster Charles ”Derby” Sabini. With the help of Haley and the handsome Chief Inspector Reed – an uneasy alliance – Ginger investigates shady dealings at the docks and at the racehorse stables. What does one have to do with the other, and how are they connected to the bodies piling up at the mortuary? Someone is working on the inside at the school, and Ginger has to find out who before she, or someone she loves, ends up lifeless on a ceramic mortuary slab.
