Killer Women in the Pittsburg Post Gazette

Pittsburg Post Gazette (August 23) compares Killer Woman K.T. Medina’s White Crocodile with fellow Killer Woman Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train:

“Those who liked Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train should also appreciate K.T. Medina’s WHITE CROCODILE… Both are first novels by young British women, former journalists who have a news writer’s aversion to florid descriptions and complicated metaphors… Both Rachel in “Train” and Tess in “Crocodile” lie to those around them, but they are honest with themselves and the reader is privy to this introspection… But there is one big difference between Rachel and Tess. When things fell apart for Rachel she became a drunk. When things went wrong for Tess, she headed for Southeast Asia. Call her The Girl on the Plane… This “girl” story is also hard to put down.”

Attractive, stylish, not naturally saintly, Agnes Bourdillon isn’t the kind of woman you expect to be a nun.

And the expensive girls’ boarding school in West Yorkshire where she’s been sent to teach is hardly a place in which one would expect to find an art mistress as disturbed as Joanna Baines, discovered by Agnes in the art room, surrounded by black paint and desecrated paintings.

Next day, Joanna has disappeared from the school.

And the day after that, a twenty-two-year-old gardener, Mark Snaith, is murdered on the moors nearby, his face horribly mutilated.

The death count starts to rise, and Agnes realises that understanding the ties which bind the close knit community outside the school might just be the key to who is behind these awful crimes.

But runaway school girls and an appearance from her past continue to complicate Agnes’ life.

As she begins to uncover the dark secret that lies beneath the façade of a well respected, local mill owning family, Agnes realises that there’s more than meets the eye…
