I read Alison's previous book which also detailed elements of Mental Health Professionals, A Justifiable Madness. When this book came to my attention I had to grab a copy.
The story evolves slowly and is told in an intriguing way, I did find the elements of the poisons interesting, and brought a different dimension to the book.
Monica was a very interesting character to get to know and I enjoyed her humour, where would she have been without it?
This is a crime mystery book that sets the pace off and builds as you read on. Finding yourself immersed in the plots, and wondering alongside Monica.
There are some extremely thought provoking issues raised in the book, without being too politically heavy, and the author really has involved her knowledge in to the book, which for me brings a tinge of reality at how mental health is perceived. How the Mental Health Community team work.
A very well written novel within a shrouded mystery lies so many layers.
