Publisher's Summary

Forensic psychiatrist Natalie King works with victims and perpetrators of violent crimes. She rides a Ducati a size too big and wears a tank top a size too small. Likes men but doesn't want to keep one. And really needs to stay on her medication.

Now she's being stalked. Anonymous notes, threats, strangers loitering outside her house. Natalie doesn't know who it could be. A hostile former patient? Or someone connected with a current case?

Question is, will she find out before it's too late?

Ok - not brilliant.

Not a bad story - but more than one plot hole (sex after breaking ribs?) and the sex scenes were laughable.

Narrator’s dreadful fake drop-in/drop-out Irish accent for the Liam character grated dreadfully. Some major pronunciation errors too.

Probably don’t bother.

Rebel forensic psychiatrist doubles as detective.

What did you like most about Medea's Curse?

Complex plot,with well drawn quirky and likeable characters.Sometimes seems a bit far fetched and sometimes the author over explains things,however the story roles along so well it's easy to overlook these glitches .Engaging characters you come to care about and a cockatoo!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Worth reading to the very end.

What about Rebecca De Unamuno’s performance did you like?

Great performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

A book is always better with a cockatoo.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to reading the others in the series.
