The Taste Of Wormwood

By Keith McCarthy

“a suspenseful, gripping page-turner of a mystery” – Booklist

Chief Inspector Beverley Wharton has always been ambitious. Her subordinates fear and dislike her, and her superiors disdain and disrespect her. Her only saving grace is her amazing solve rate. Her latest case could make or break her career. A series of brutal murders have occurred, and while the method – stabbing, then throat-slitting – is the same, it’s difficult to find a link between the victims.

Pathologist John Eisenmenger has been out of commission after a mental breakdown, but now he’s back, and Wharton is eager for his input, which has helped her solve cases in the past. But this case is full of challenging conundrums: possible human trafficking or drug smuggling; a vengeful, tragic mother; a man damaged by a military blunder; militant terrorists; and a potential dirty bomb aimed at a high-level target. Will Wharton be able to join the bloody dots before it’s too late?
