Book Summary

Preferring animals to people because of a disfigurement from a childhood accident, veterinary surgeon Clara Benning is called upon to investigate a snakebite death and discovers that the victim's body possessed a higher concentration of venom than a snake can produce, a realization that leads to a conclusion that the victim was murdered.
