About the Book

"Medea's Curse is a gripping ride of crime and tension, with a Lisbeth Salander-like lead roaring through danger and intrigue at a million miles an hour."—Adelaide Advertiser

"Forensic psychologist Natalie King is not your average heroine. . . . An intelligent, thought-provoking tale."—Courier Mail

Natalie Richards works with women: victims and perpetrators of violent crime. Survivor of a tough childhood herself, she's now a dedicated, insightful professional doing her best to make a difference. She also rides a Ducati a couple of sizes too big and wears a tank top a size too small. Likes men but doesn't particularly want to keep one. And really needs to stay on her meds.

Now she's being stalked.

A disgruntled former patient? Or someone connected with a current case? Georgia Latimer—charged with killing her four children. Travis Hardy—deadbeat father of another murdered child; his second daughter has disappeared now, too. Could it be something to do with crown prosecutor Liam O'Shea—drop-dead sexy, and trouble in all kinds of ways?

Natalie doesn't know. Question is, will she find out before it's too late?

Anne Buist is the Chair of Women's Mental Health at the University of Melbourne and has over twenty-five years clinical and research experience in perinatal psychiatry. She works with Protective Services and the legal system in cases of abuse, kidnapping, infanticide, and murder.
