First Cut
by Judy Melinek M. D. and T. J. Mitchell


Overview - "Scalpel sharp."--Karin Slaughter

A hard-nosed medical examiner. A suspicious case. An underworld plot only she saw coming.

San Francisco's newest medical examiner, Dr. Jessie Teska, has made a chilling discovery. A suspected overdose case contains hints of something more sinister: a drug lord's attempt at a murderous cover-up. But as Jessie digs deeper, she faces unexpected pushback from her superiors--and pressure to stay in her lane, close the case and move on.

For Jessie, San Francisco was supposed to be a fresh start, a chance to escape her troublesome past in Los Angeles. Instead she finds herself overworked and underpaid, working in a dingy morgue and living under the fog in a cramped converted cable car. Now, despite warnings from her colleagues and threats from her boss, she is determined to find the truth.

As more bodies land on her autopsy table, Jessie uncovers a constellation of deaths that point to a plot involving opioid traffickers and San Francisco's shifting terrain of tech start-ups. Autopsy means "see for yourself," and Jessie Teska won't stop until she has seen it all--even if it means the next corpse on the slab could be her own.
