Launch of Lyn McFarlane’s, The Scarlet Cross

April 8, 2022 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

Sisters in Crime author, Lyn McFarlane, will be in conversation with Kathryn Heyman, for the launch of her debut novel, The Scarlet Cross, set in Canada:

Meredith Griffin manages the emergency department at St Jude Hospital. A specialist in psychiatric nursing, she’s also an expert at hiding her own problems – and solving everyone else’s. When women with the same fatal injury begin turning up in Meredith’s emergency ward, their deaths are labelled as suicides. But Meredith isn’t so sure. With the help of Detective Leo Donnelly, she begins an investigation to prove that the women were murdered.

As pressure mounts from all quarters to stop her, questions arise about why the women were targeted – and why the hospital is so desperate to cover things up.

In a battle against addiction, self-doubt, and a corrupt institution that may be hiding a serial killer, Meredith finds herself in the crosshairs of a network of powerful people – all of whom will stop at nothing to protect their privilege and keep her from the truth.

An atmospheric and intelligent crime thriller set in a hospital where nothing is as it seems.

Lyn McFarlane is a Canadian-Australian writer, lawyer, and former freelance journalist. She splits her time between Sydney, and Vancouver Island, Canada. She holds degrees in economics and journalism and a masters in law. The Scarlet Cross won the Arthur Ellis Prize for Best Unpublished Manuscript in 2019.
