When Detective Charlie Cooper and his partner, Detective Joe Quinn were sent to the site of a murder, the initial thought of a mugging gone wrong didn’t sit well with Cooper. And when they discovered where the victim had worked, his gut instincts told him that he was right. The front of the pharmaceutical plant which made vaccinations, had a group of “anti-vaxxers” chanting and holding up placards. They had been there for around six weeks, and although peaceful, the police had been keeping an ey ...more

Another fascinating episode in the lives of Cooper and Quinn, both very likable cops neither of whom is an alcoholic or tragically single after a brutal divorce. Thank goodness. Cooper does have a wife who is addicted to prescription drugs, but that's a separate story.

In Dark Chemistry the duo try to solve a number of murders which may or may not be related. The issue of whether childhood vaccination causes Autism is front and centre and interestingly one of the adult characters is on the spectr

Cooper and Quinn are great again. With serious thoughts (and doubts) about pharmaceutical companies. Leo is simply great!

A fast paced novel read in one sitting about a homicide in Macquarie Fields in south west Sydney, Australia. The 310 pages just whizzed by, leaving this reader to wonder more about some of the characters than the storyline itself. This reader thought the author put all the emphasis upon the storyline and forgot about some of the character development in the story. Another reader pointed out that 'if you wanted to know more about the characters, then it would be best to start from book one' (it's ...more

Does vaccination cause autism? Catherine Lee does not try to give a final answer.
Cooper and Quinn need to find out if one of the protesters against vaccination is capable of murder.
The most interesting character in this novel is Leo. I don't personally know anybody with Asperger's, but I guess that he's described really well.
There are some lengths in the middle, but the end is really suspenseful.

There are three books in the series available so far: Dark Heart, which looks at the topic of cellular memory, Dark Past, which has themes around ancestry and genetics, and Dark Secrets, which deals with the difficult topics of bullying and ...more
