              A hard-nosed San Francisco medical examiner uncovers an underworld plot in this fiction debut by the New York Times bestselling authors of Working Stiff San Francisco's newest medical examiner, Dr. Jessie Teska, has made a chilling discovery. A suspected overdose case contains hi...nts of something more sinister: a drug lord's attempt at a murderous cover-up. But as Jessie digs deeper, she faces unexpected pushback from her superiors, who urge her to stay in her lane, close the case and move on. For Jessie, San Francisco was supposed to be a fresh start, a chance to escape her troublesome past in Los Angeles. Instead she finds herself overworked and underpaid, working in a dingy morgue and living under the fog in a cramped converted cable car. Now, despite warnings from her surly colleagues and threats from her domineering boss, she is determined to discover the truth. As more bodies land on her autopsy table, Jessie uncovers a constellation of deaths that point to an elaborate plot involving nefarious opioid traffickers and San Francisco's shifting terrain of tech start-ups. Autopsy means see for yourself, and Jessie Teska won't stop until she has seen it all - even if it means the next corpse on the slab could be her own. Gritty, compelling and introducing an irresistibly badass heroine, First Cut is a deliciously thrilling crime debut from the New York Times bestselling authors of Working Stiff: Two Years, 262 Bodies, and the Making of a Medical Examiner.

              The fascinating story of the forgotten woman who pioneered forensic science As America ramps up efforts toward victory in World War II, Frances Glessner Lee stands at the front of a wood-paneled classroom within Harvard Medical School and addresses the young men attending her sem...inar on the developing field of forensic science. A grandmother without a college degree, Lee may appear better suited for a life of knitting than of investigation of unexpected death. Her colleagues and students, however, know her to be an extremely intelligent and exacting researcher and teacher--the perfect candidate, despite her gender, to push the scientific investigation of unexpected death out of the dark confines of centuries-old techniques and into the light of the modern day. Lee's decades-long obsession with advancing the discipline of forensic science was a battle from the very beginning. In a time when many prestigious medical schools were closed to female students and young women were discouraged from entering any kind of scientific profession, Lee used her powerful social skills, family wealth, and uncompromising dedication to revolutionize a field that was usually political, often corrupt, and always deeply rooted in the primal human fear of death. 18 Tiny Deaths transports the reader back in time and tells the story of how one woman, who should never have even been allowed into the classrooms she ended up teaching in, changed the face of science forever.
