Europe, late 19th century. Antibiotics have yet to be invented, and germs take a death toll that lets the number of murders appear negligible. But when a cholera victim is found floating in one of London’s drinking water supplies, Dr Anton Kronberg — England’s best bacteriologist — is called upon to investigate. He crosses paths with Sherlock Holmes. The detective immediately discovers Kronberg’s secret — a woman masquerading as a man in order to practice medicine — a criminal deed that could land her in prison for years to come. The two highly analytical minds provoke and annoy each other at once. Eventually, they must team up to unravel a spiderweb of murder, espionage, and bioterrorism that spreads across continents.
This book is illustrated with historical photographs, drawing, and paintings, and compiles the first three books in the Kronberg Thriller Series: The Devil’s Grin, The Fall, & The Journey

About the Author:
Annelie writes stuff all the time. She’s an adjunct professor in environmental microbiology, and occasionally she makes her students cry.
When she’s not busy writing science papers, she blogs about science.
What most people don’t know is that her head is filled with fictional characters. All too often, the poor sods have to suffer and maybe even die.
When it comes to fictional violence, Annelie Wendeberg knows her stuff. But I won’t reveal details.
Well maybe only this: Lessons in forensic toxicology are the best.
