I enjoyed this second book in Kathryn Fox's Anya Crichton series.
Anya is developing well as an interesting, strong and at times feisty character and the plot moved along at a good pace. As a forensic pathologist, Anya volunteers at a women's crisis centre and sees women after they have been raped. She helps them to decide if they want her to collect evidence of the rape and whether to go to the police or not. Rape is a difficult subject to write about but the author does it well and sensitively without going into unnecessary graphic details that we don't need to know. When Anya sees a series of rapes with similar injuries and other similarities she suspects that a serial rapist may be at work.
Under suspicion is a man who has recently been released from goal after serving 20 years for the rape and murder of a 14 year old, however Anya has doubts about whether he really is the current rapist. The ending was quite thrilling and had a few twists I didn't see coming. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series, but hope that the focus will be less on Anya's work at the sexual crisis centre and more on her work as a forensic pathologist.
Before reading this book I was oblivious to the conflicts inherent in protecting the victims of rape from further violation and what the legal system requires for a successful prosecution. It asks the question, who should decide which is more important, the victim's right to dignity or the need to incarcerate known rapists? An interesting examination of a situation with no easy answer. As always, the character development is excellent making their dilemmas very real.

Much better written than other books of hers I have reviewed. Fox is at her best when she writes about her own experiences. When she does, the scenes have the ring of authority. Her attempts at writing as a detective have been disappointing. I saw the end coming a mile away, but I always do.
It is a rare effort that can surprise me. Is she another Patricia Cornwell, as the hype would have it? Her ability to write believable characters is too limited yet, but she may improve. I have read the first book in the series and partially read the following two by this author featuring Dr Crichton. I probably won't read any more. The character is likeable but the books fall into the same old trap of other books written as part of a series. I wish the author and or editors would re read her previous books to avoid a formula which goes as follows: heroine discovers nefarious goings - related to her field of course so she can demonstrate her vast knowledge of medicine, diseases and pathology.
However when all seems lost, she is saved by very timely intervention of friendly and supportive cop. She obviously lives a very dangerous life which is of course completely unrealistic. Great interesting read. This is the second book I've read by this author. Although her writing is good, there were a few grammatical errors, maybe due to the author being from Australia? I will probably read more of her books. Really great read I feel like I am getting to know Dr Anya now really well from the second book and what an amazing person she is so down to earth!!!
The story line was fabulous and keeps you going all the way to the end. I was a bit disappointed. There is too much in the novel. The previous book was better. The first book had much more in it. I am now reading The Old School and it is much better as it has got the excitement and thrill.

Learn more about Amazon Prime. The authenticity of her work makes the forensic detail even more chilling, and the tight plotting whips the story along at a breakneck pace. Lock your doors and read this book. Without Consent is sure to add to that. The story is a compelling one that challenges the reader with some nasty little surprises before delivering the requistite heart-stopping ending. Most crime fiction, no matter how well done, is inconsequential escapist entertainment.

Fox adds a worthy message to the mix, which gives the story staying power long after the last loose end is tightly tied up. Its compassion is genuine and based on experience. Kathryn Fox is more than just another able exponent of the crime genre. She is also extremely well informed about the way an investigation can impact on those who have already been hurt.
