Alaina Urquhart is a true Weirdo, in the best way possible. As an Autopsy Technician and co-host of a widely successful podcast, Morbid, she uses her extensive knowledge and experience to bring us up close and dirty behind the scenes of the role of a Medical Examiner and into the mind of a deranged serial killer. Dr. Wren Muller may not be able to speak to the dead, but that doesn't mean they don't have stories to tell. And with a dangerous killer dumping his victims throughout New Orleans, it is only a matter of time before she strays into his crosshairs trying to unfold the who, and the why, of this monster. 

— From Giovanni



From the co-host of chart-topping true crime podcast Morbid, a thrilling debut novel told from the dueling perspectives of a notorious serial killer and the medical examiner following where his trail of victims leads

Something dark is lurking in the Louisiana bayou: a methodical killer with a penchant for medical experimentation is hard at work completing his most harrowing crime yet, taunting the authorities who desperately try to catch up.

But forensic pathologist Dr. Wren Muller is the best there is. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of historical crimes, and years of experience working in the Medical Examiner's office, she's never encountered a case she couldn't solve. Until now. Case after case is piling up on Wren's examination table, and soon she is sucked into an all-consuming cat-and-mouse chase with a brutal murderer getting more brazen by the day.

An addictive read with straight-from-the-morgue details only an autopsy technician could provide, The Butcher and the Wren promises to ensnare all who enter.
