Baker & Taylor
Detective Inspector Kathy Kolla investigates the inexplicable arsenic poisoning of London student Marion Summers, who had moved three years prior without leaving a forwarding address and whose stepfather has an unsavory past ... and present. From the author of No Trace. 25,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
Newly promoted to Detective Inspector, Kathy Kolla of the Serious Crimes Unit is called in by the forensic pathologist regarding the recent sudden death of a London student from what he’s determined to be arsenic poisoning. Marion Summers had no reason to be in contact with arsenic and, though once common, arsenic is now very hard to get hold of. The more Kolla investigates, the more she discovers that certain other things about Summers are also unusual. She moved three octobers ago without leaving a forwarding address or informing her relatives. And her step-father has a disquieting past and, after attacking a constable in a pub, a not-so-savory present. With each turn in the investigation, it becomes increasingly clear that behind what really happened—and why—lies the most difficult-to-crack case the team has ever faced.

Great read, very happy to have found another mystery series worth reading...

I found the the subject matter in this police procedural absolutely engaging; academics studying the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood together with an arsenic poisoning. The conclusion was a clever surprise.
