Last year Frozen introduced Welsh crime writer Lindsay Jayne Ashford to U.S. mystery fans. Now Strange Blood, the next in this critically acclaimed series, has been shortlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year. Fellow nominees include Val McDermid, Ian Rankin, and Stephen Booth.

In this second crime novel to feature forensic psychologist Dr. Megan Rhys, she is called in to help police investigate what they believe to be a ritual killing. But as more women die, and as the press, the police, her boss, and even her own family turn on her, Megan stakes everything on finding the killer.

Praise for Strange Blood

Praise for Frozen

“Gritty, streetwise, and raw . . . with an authenticity and detail borne of Ashford’s own journalistic experience.”
- Denise Hamilton, the Edgar, Anthony and CWA Creasey Memorial Dagger award–nominated author of Prisoner of Memory and other Eve Diamond crime novels

“Chilling . . . will appeal to patrons who enjoy the forensic procedurals of Kathy Reichs.”
- Library Journal

“Megan is a likable, complex character. . . . the fast-paced story keeps the reader involved. A promising debut.”
- Booklist

“Patricia Cornwell has patented the persona of the doughty heroine who bucks the system, but Ashford is closer to her personal demons. A worthy new talent.”
- The Guardian (UK)

“Chillingly good. Frozen is intelligent, loaded with suspense, and possesses one heck of a gutsy female detective in Dr. Megan Rhys.”
- Beverly Connor, author of Dead Past and the Diane Fallon Forensic Investigation series
