Author Annelie Wendebergabout this book: How far would you go to stop a crime so cold-blooded it outshines the deeds of Jack the Ripper? Anna Kronberg, masquerading as a male medical doctor in the late Victorian London, joins forces with the one man who can land her in prison for years to come. While struggling to solve a case of organised murder and abduction, Anna must gamble with her career, her life, and her sanity.



EXTENDED DESCRIPTION:

Dr Anton Kronberg is England's best bacteriologist of the late 19th century. And he is a criminal.

In a time when higher education is a male privilege, Anna Kronberg cuts her hair short and puts on trousers, a deed that can land her in prison for years to come. Her journey as a male medical doctor leads her across Europe and America.

During the daytime she hides her sex while at night she pretends to be a medical nurse. She lives in London's worst rookery and her lover is a thief, who has no clue about her secret life or the fake penis in her doctor's bag.

No one has proved perceptive enough to penetrate Dr Kronberg's near foolproof disguise - until now. Called in by the Yard to examine a cholera fatality found floating in London's drinking water supply, Anna crosses paths with the one man capable of unmasking her at a glance – the redoubtable Sherlock Homes.

And so begins a complex game of cat and mouse pitting the brilliant doctor and the master sleuth in analytical combat - until they are compelled to join forces to solve a crime so monstrous, it outshines Jack the Ripper's deeds in brutality and cold bloodedness.

(Synopsis by: Paul Negri, former Editor-in-Chief and President of Dover Publications)
