The Lion’s Courtship
ANNA KRONBERG BOOK 1
“…so well written it belongs aside Oliver Twist, Wuthering Heights and other classics.”
“I stayed up most of the night savouring this novel.”
“I loved it on so many levels. Every free minute between taking care of my young kids was spent engrossed in this series. An intelligent and exciting story line with amazing characters.”
Anna Kronberg lives in Victorian London’s worst rookery, offering medical treatment to prostitutes, vagrants, and criminals. To her, plugging holes and mopping up blood is normal. Stitching the slashed face of a young prostitute is not. Witnesses refuse to talk. The police can’t be bothered with yet another injured whore. But whispers are spreading about a man who pays well for a few harmless knife marks.
No one dares reveal the man’s identity. Only Garret O’Hare – a thief Anna barely knows – reluctantly agrees to help her investigate the assault.
But when the injured girl disappears, a veil of silence descends upon the slum. And Anna learns that she is no longer the hunter, but the hunted.
Warning: medical procedures, poverty, and prostitution are depicted without apology.
The Devil’s Grin
ANNA KRONBERG BOOK 2
Best Sherlock Holmes Novel 2014 (German Sherlock Holmes Society)
“A duel of two deduction monsters.”
“…a powerful debut.”
London 1889. A dead man is found floating in the city’s waterworks. Fearing an epidemic, the Metropolitan Police call upon bacteriologist Dr Anton Kronberg to examine the body. All signs point toward cholera having killed the man…but for faint marks around wrists and ankles.
Evidence for a crime is weak, and the police lose interest in the case. But Kronberg suspects that the dead man’s final days had been steeped in cruelty. Soon, a second victim is found, and Kronberg gets embroiled in a web of abduction, abuse, and murder.
But catching a killer and staying alive would be easier if the doctor didn’t have secrets of…her own.
Warning: medical procedures are depicted without apology.
ANNA KRONBERG BOOK 3

As Britain’s foremost bacteriologist she certainly has the skills. But will she make a deal with the devil and aid in mass murder? Or will she sacrifice the only family she has left?
Anna sees only one way out: She has to play a dangerous game of deception. If she fails, her experiments with deadly diseases will have terrifying and far-reaching consequences.
