Praise for Medea's Curse:

"Forensic psychiatrist Natalie King is not your average heroine nor is Medea's Curse a predictable by-the-numbers thriller. . . . An intelligent, thought-provoking tale." --Courier Mail

"Buist brings her considerable experience as a perinatal psychiatrist to bear in this novel, giving it authenticity and gravitas." --Daily Telegraph

"An intelligent thriller." --Who Weekly

"A harrowing and thrilling read, this mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat." --Buzzfeed

Psychiatrist Natalie King is the expert witness in a vicious child custody battle, and the stakes are high. Getting it wrong means handing a child over to an abuser-or depriving that child of the only father she knows.

Is Jenna gaming the system, or is her ex-husband Malik as dangerous as she suggests? How can Natalie best protect the child? And now that Natalie's pregnant-and still unsure of the child's paternity--how is a growing preoccupation with her own lost father affecting her judgment?

Court dramas, cultural clashes and media backlash create an explosive mixture that forces Natalie to make life and death choices.

How far will a parent go to keep-or save-their child?

Anne Buist has over twenty-five years' clinical and research experience in perinatal psychiatry. Professor Buist is married to novelist Graeme Simsion. Her previous Natalie King novels are Medea's Curse and Dangerous to Know. Her most recent novel is Two Steps Forward, co-written with Graeme Simsion.
