Medical Mysteries

Recommended Reading - Authors

This list deals with books set in a hospital or with a strong medical background
Basing mysteries in hospitals seems not to have been used as often as one would imagine
The opportunity for skulduggery and no good is manifestly clear
Plenty of well known characters have had medical backgrounds of course and routinely used their skills
Though usually to a non medical backdrop
Below is a sample list suggested authors and books
