"Recommended to anyone who likes a mystery/crime novel that focuses on thinking, and one that--in its favour--isn't full of unnecessary gore. It's a good first novel." - Awesome Indies (awesomeindies.net)
A Book Readers' Appreciation Group (B.R.A.G.) Medallion Honoree (bragmedallion.com)"It's an enjoyable and accomplished debut." - Crime Fiction Lover (crimefictionlover.com)
"I enjoyed the plot line and really did not expect all thetwists and turns." Crime Book Club
"Once I'd started it I just wanted to keep on reading. I wassurprised by how intricate and complex the plot is, with several sub-plots anda crowd of characters, all of whom are clearly defined. Set in theScottish Borders, it also has a strong sense of location and it wasrefreshing to read a Scottish crime novel that is not set in Edinburgh, Glasgowor even in Shetland. It's a fast-paced novel that kept me on the edge wantingto find out more." Margaret Freeman, Books Please
About the Author
Janet O'Kane was raised in southern England and went straight from reading Enid Blyton's books to what her Mum liked reading: crime novels. And despite occasional dalliances with other types of fiction, that's where she has happily stayed. Her career before turning to writing full-time included selling underpants to Roger Moore in Harrods, the London department store, and marketing nappies for a national chain of chemists. It was when she helped run a family doctor's surgery that she decided a doctor would make an excellent main character for a series of mysteries. Janet lives south of Edinburgh in the Scottish Borders with her stonemason husband and a cat, two dogs and far too many chickens. She is now working on the sequel to No Stranger to Death, due for release autumn 2015, and learning to tap-dance.
