Forensic psychiatrist Natalie King works with victims and perpetrators of violent crime. Women with a history of abuse, mainly. She rides a Ducati a size too big and wears a tank top a size too small. Likes men but doesn't want to keep one. And really needs to stay on her medication. Now she's being stalked. Anonymous notes, threats, strangers loitering outside her house. A hostile former patient? Or someone connected with a current case? Georgia Latimer—charged with killing her three children. Travis Hardy—deadbeat father of another murdered child, with a second daughter now missing. Maybe the harrassment has something to do with Crown Prosecutor Liam O'Shea—drop-dead sexy, married and trouble in all kinds of ways. Natalie doesn't know. Question is, will she find out before it's too late? Anne Buist, herself a leading perinatal psychiatrist, has created an edge-of-the-seat mystery with a hot new heroine—backed up by a lifetime of experience with troubled minds. About the Author Anne Buist is the Chair of Women’s Mental Health at the University of Melbourne and has over 25 years clinical and research experience in perinatal psychiatry. She works with Protective Services and the legal system in cases of abuse, kidnapping, infanticide and murder. Medea’s Curse is her first mainstream psychological thriller. Professor Buist is married to novelist Graeme Simsion and has two children.


More Description


"Medea's Curse is 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

"Forensic psychologist Natalie King is not your average heroine. . . . An intelligent, thought-provoking tale."--Courier Mail

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. She also rides a Ducati a couple of sizes too big and wears a tank top a size too small. Likes men but doesn't particularly want to keep one. And really needs to stay on her meds.

Now she's being stalked.

A disgruntled former patient? Or someone connected with a current case? Georgia Latimer--charged with killing her four children. Travis Hardy--deadbeat father of another murdered child; his second daughter has disappeared now, too. Could it be something to do with crown prosecutor Liam O'Shea--drop-dead sexy, and trouble in all kinds of ways?

Natalie doesn't know. Question is, will she find out before it's too late?
