Unless author Danielle Girard decides the expand this two novel series (and she likely will), the San Francisco Police Medical Examiner Dr. Annabelle Schwartzman series is complete.
Excise is difficult to classify. It is a serial murder mystery. It is also a psychological thriller as Dr. Schwartzman's murdering ex-husband Spencer McDonald is seeking to find and kill her as she tries to evade him. Finally, it is a medical thriller a Dr. Schwartzmen fights for her life against a late stage breast cancer. The situation is complex!
Compared to Exhume, the first novel in the series, Excise has less suspense related to the psychological aspects. I did not like Excise as much as Exhume which I rated 5 stars, yet Excise is an excellent novel. Shannon McManus does a great job of narration of this worthwhile series.

There has to be a follow-up. The ending screams for it. And so does the new house. It’s almost like a modern version of a Victorian mystery with a touch of horror.
Good tale and page turning stuff all the way through , however the ending is a cliff hanger. Plenty of excitement and twists in the story line but without a book 3 I'm left feeling non-plussed.
