When Scotland's leading virologist goes missing, Mona and Paterson from the Health Enforcement Team are dispatched to London to find him. In a hot and unwelcoming city, Mona has to deal with a boss who isn't speaking to her, placate the Professor's over-bearing assistant, and outwit the people who will stop at nothing to make sure the academic stays lost. Meanwhile, back in Edinburgh, Bernard is searching for a missing prostitute, while Maitland is trying to keep the Chair of the Parliamentary Virus Committee from finding out quite how untidy the HET office is.

Review quote

`Laced with dark humour and a sense that the unfolding fiction could become a reality at any moment, there's a mesmeric quality to Kelly's writing that ensures this book, like its predecessor, is a real page turner; with the exception of a few hours sleep, I read it from cover to cover over a weekend - seldom does a book have that draw.'-Liam Rudden, Edinburgh Evening News; `A nicely constructed and very entertaining thriller, and comes complete with some beautifully-drawn and very memorable characters.'-Undiscovered Scotland; `An absolutely cracking thriller, with an excellent blend of pace and humour... I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am already looking forward to reading the next one!'-Amanda Fleet, author and blogger; `Songs by Dead Girls is a thoroughly entertaining read which rattles along at a lively pace. It's witty and full of brilliant characters you will both love and love to hate.'-Portobello Book Blog
