Editorial Reviews


“Kaaberbøl has created a genuinely tough, empathetic female heroine in an era when women were meant to be seen and not heard.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

"Kaaberbøl excels at details. From her depictions of 19th century France to the details of an autopsy, she leaves nothing out. Her research is superb and her understanding of the socio-political atmosphere is remarkable." (Killer Nashville)

Praise for Doctor Death:

“Deftly exploring such themes as the struggles between mind and body, science and spirit—without detracting from a gripping plot—the novel transcends its period to contemplate the eternal.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Madeleine Karno is a sleuth both true to the period and rooted in strength of will, gumption, and ambition.” (Sarah Weinman, editor of Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives )

"Engrossing... Sure to please fans of historical mysteries.” (Library Journal)

“A convincing thriller taking place in 19th century France, Doctor Death is a unique tale.” (RT Book Reviews)

“Eloquently written and with powerful insight into human and animal nature.” (

“Madeleine’s inquisitive mind and candid voice are enough to keep us reading.” (New York Times)
