This book should go in the true-crime category, since that is what it is. Truly, it's a shocker. You'll never look at the healthcare industry the same way again. Or at lawyers, for that matter. But then, you never really liked lawyers much, did you?

This is the most exceptional memoir I've read in ... a decade? Longer?

It is in its way a very American book, but in a not-good way; it has a theme of self-reliance taken to insane extremes (I'm talking about her parents). I don't want to spoil it by

I see she has a new book out in August 2019. Hooray! I love this author so much, and am beholden to her because after reading her books, I wanted to write something similar.

“For it was a truth universally acknowledged that a single vicar must be in want of a wife.”
G.M. Malliet, Wicked Autumn

“Every seed that produces this miraculous bounty has the code that will heal all ills - and a sprout travels from the darkness towards the light, just as we all must do. We simply aren't evolved enough yet to understand how it all fits together.”
G.M. Malliet, Wicked Autumn

“Oh please tell me we're not doing the Poirot thing again — the suspects in the library with the candlestick or whatever'.

Max looked at him [DCI Cotton]. 'Fruitcake in this case. And what would you prefer? A car chase? It’s the most efficient way to flush out a killer, as Dame Agatha Christie well knew.”
G.M. Malliet, A Demon Summer
