Praise for Medea's Curse:

"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

"A harrowing and thrilling read, this mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat."—Buzzfeed, Best Australian Books of 2015

Forensic psychiatrist 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.

Natalie King is back from a stay on the psych ward. Her reluctance to live a quiet life has contributed to a severe depressive episode, and now it's time for a retreat to the country. A borrowed house on the coast, and a low-key research job at a provincial university nearby.

But Natalie and trouble have a strange mutual fascination. Her charismatic new boss Frank is friendly, even attractive. But it turns out his pregnant wife is an old enemy of Natalie's. And when Frank's tragic personal history is revealed—then reprised in the most shocking way—Natalie finds herself drawn deep into a mystery. And even deeper into danger.

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