A disappearance, a dead body and then other dead bodies. What caused the deaths? Was it murder, a natural death, or something else?
It is the 1800's, and medical procedures aren't very sophisticated, but Madeleine Karno wants to learn about medical procedures even though it was not lady-like to see or to take part in the medical field.
Meanwhile, someone was murdering town folks and mutilating them with human teeth bites. Madeleine was required to help even though her father wasn't happy, but she definitely was.
DOCTOR DEATH was a bit slow at first, but once the reader is taken to the convent and other murders happen, DOCTOR DEATH unveils hidden secrets of the town and the book's characters. I love secrets, doesn't everyone, though?
DOCTOR DEATH went from learning about medical procedures to solving multiple murders to an odd ending.
The book was very different in terms of content and a bit confusing. Great characters, though. Even though the ending was odd, it did wrap things up.
I enjoyed the read, but it isn't a favorite just because of the slow beginning, confusion about who was who and what was going on, and the odd ending. 3/5
This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
