    I finished Cold Grave last night and.Hmm, it was just ok for me This is the 6th book in the Anya Crichton series of which I have read all, with 7 waiting on my shelf to be read.I don t think K.Fox excelled herself with this one and I gave it 3 s because it was just ok I believe there is an overload of excess statistical information on environmental waste and sustainability issues within the cruise liner industry which is plonked into the story in blocks that don t merge or flow it gets a bit bor [...]

    Two and a half stars.People who read gritty crime novels will probably enjoy this book That is not me, but still I decided to give it a go.The characters of forensic physician Dr Anya Crichton and her ex husband Martin are interesting They are both on a cruise with their six year old son, Ben But what was supposed to be a relaxing cruise turns into the cruise from hell, when the body of a young teenage girl is discovered stuffed in a cupboard With clues having been washed away Anya volunteers to [...]

    Anya has been looking forward to a relaxing cruise back to Sydney from the US In particular having time to spend with her son Ben and ex husband Martin who brought Ben out to the US to see her However, when a young girl is found wet, cold and not breathing on deck, Martin and Anya get involved in trying to save her and then in finding out how she came to be there.This promised to be a good, investigative story into the use of drugs and the behaviour of party animals on cruise ships, however kep [...]

    Cold Grave is the 6th book by Kathryn Fox featuring forensic physician, Dr Anya Crichton, and after the first few pages I was barely able to tear myself away Cleverly plotted with multiple threads that provide intriguing mystery and thrilling action, Cold Grave is a fantastic read Inspired in part by the death of Australian Dianne Brimble, a mother of three who was drugged, raped and left to die by a group of men during a cruise in 2002, Fox creates a compelling story exploring the seedier side [...]

    I enjoyed this book and finished it in a day I liked the characters and found the story exciting and interesting I also understood that she had based her story loosely on the Diane Brimble case However I did feel from time to time that she became a little heavy handed with her opinions of the cruise ship industry in its entirety If the reader had never been on a cruise this book would be enough to prevent them from ever doing so So a book where you just suspend belief and go along for the fun of [...]

    Another exciting installment from the world of Anya Crichton, Forensic physician, and it didn t disappoint The setting of a cruise ship added to the complications and difficulties of identifying and catching the murderer and the atmosphere was brilliant.

    Another wonderful thriller by Aussie author Kathryn Fox Dr Anya Crichton had just completed a case and received a trip on the luxury cruise ship, Paradisio, all expenses paid, with her six year old son, Ben Also along on the cruise is Anya s ex husband, Martin, who cares for Ben full time.Anya and Ben are sharing a cabin, while Martin is below decks in a small, very noisy cabin The morning after their departure from Fiji, the three of them went to the pool deck for a swim, well before breakfast [...]

    Fox is known to pen excellent books and this one did not fall short Her second consecutive novel that takes us away from life in Australia, we still see forensic physician Anya Crichton in her key role as crime solver and lady of mystery That said, the entire story takes place aboard a less than usual venue, a cruise ship While it does seem unorthodox, Fox displays a great knowledge of these tourist vessels and sets the story as well as the murders in the perfect setting, without making the whol [...]

    4.5 Another fantastic Anya Crichton I started this the day I boarded a Princess cruise ship and I was hoping that Princess Cruises was very different from whichever line the Paradisio the ship that Anya was sailing on in this book was a part of Certainly behaviour onboard a Princess ship when I was on her last was very different from that on the Paradisio, and it seemed different this time as well thankfully I still enjoyed some of the insights into the cruising industry and things I hadn t prev [...]

    2 1 2 starsI have read the entire Dr Anya Crichton series and feel that this is perhaps the weakest Whilst the main characters are likable and a known entity that I feel comfortable with, the narrative for me felt a little preachy and I think this spoilt rather than enhanced the story I felt we were lectured on a range of issues including but not limited to exploitation of labourers from third world countries, cruise ship ecological damage pollution, excesses of wealth in the form of over indulg [...]

    Cold Grave represents the sixth book in the Anna Crichton series by Kathryn Fox and the second I ve had the pleasure of reading I thoroughly enjoyed the book, reading in just two days, another case of not wanting to put the book down due to a gripping storyline and fast paced narrative.One of the things that intrigued me about this book long before I d had chance to read it was the fact that the book was set in its entirety on board a cruise ship Many years ago I sailed from Australia to the UK [...]

    Simone Sinna
    Cold Grave by Kathryn FoxI ve followed the progress of this novelist and her character Anya Crichton with interest, partly because she s another Aussie health professional and partly because she seems to have at least partly cracked into the same league as Patricia Cornwell and a number of other authors eg Tess Gerristen who combine medicine and crime Cold Grave is the latest in the series, and as with the others also has an ongoing romance social complications in the background.For me this book [...]

    Anya Crichton is looking forward to spending some quality time with her son even if he ex husband is in tow Shortly after boarding their all expenses paid cruise, a teenage girl is found dead Is she a victim of excess or is there a killer on board Unable to leave her work behind, Anya becomes involved in the investigation and soon finds out there s to the cruise industry than meets the eye.I think this is the end of this series for me Whilst I enjoyed the first few books, this one had exactly t [...]

    Emmanuelle
    I was disappointed with the book I was looking for a good mystery crime novel to read, and read some good reviews about this book This is the first Kathryn Fox novel I have read I found the characters superficial, and could not feel empathy towards any of them By the end of the book I did not really care what happened to any of them The plot was not very credible and rather convoluted and whilst I finished the book, it was a bit of a struggle On the good side, I learnt a little about what goes o [...]

    David
    Not the best in the Anya Crichton series Less forensic thriller than previous books in the series, and from my perspective the plot meandered along without reaching any great heights Nevertheless, still an enjoyable enough read, and it certainly opened my eyes up to the hi jinx that occurs on luxury cruises and the issues with legal jurisdiction when on the high seas Hopefully the next installment in this series is back to the very high standards of previous Kathryn Fox books.

    Alan
    A traditional whodunnit than Kathryn Fox s other Anya Crichton books Anya, her ex husband, and son anticipate a relaxing cruise only to find themselves knee deep in bodies Interesting info about the legal and environmental aspects of cruise ships and a compelling set of murders Just not sure how the title Cold Grave was relevant

    Fran
    This was my first Kathryn Fox read and I m now looking forward to my next It was fascinating reading about what goes on behind the scene of luxury liners I went on one three years ago and had considered going on another because it had been so relaxing After reading this book, however, I m hardly keen to play a part in adding to the environmental damage these floating hotels cause.

    Leah McGrath
    It was okay could have been better but at times it felt like I was reading a book about the environment and how cruise ships contribute to waste in the ocean Too much stats and things She definitely did her research but maybe pushed it onto the reader too much.

    A great thriller by Aussie author Kathryn Fox, my first read of a Kathryn Fox novel.Best quote for me page 336 All I know is some people think they can hang onto someone they ve lost by keeping things from their time together I prefer to that memories and ongoing love, not possessions, keep them alive in us Also Kathryn s website has link to Read Life re Kathryn s commitment to being patron for Indigenous Reading program for students via Stewart House and supporting indigenous mothers to have ac [...]

    Cold Grave is a thrilling murder mystery, set entirely on a cruise ship It is an atmospheric story with a topical plot, exposing common problems facing the cruising industry Doctor Anya Crichton returns for Kathryn Fox s sixth novel Anya is on route from the US back to Australia on a relaxing cruise ship holiday with her son and ex husband Anya and her ex husband unwittingly become involved in a murder investigation when one morning they try to save the life of a teenage girl discovered on deck [...]

    3.5 starsCold Grave is the sixth book about Dr Anya Crichton written by Kathryn Fox, but it is my first on the series This may be a disadvantage, but I must recognize I had no problem whatsoever to jump in the story There are some references to events taking place in the previous books, but nothing important enough to become an ultimate hindrance The book reads perfectly as a standalone.After her last case, Dr Crichton, together with her son Ben and her ex husband Martin, is awarded a two weeks [...]

    Lately I ve been expanding my reading horizons and adding crime books to my pile I love crime and murder mysteries, but so far limit myself to movies and TV series I think it s a shame I ve missed so many good crime books.I don t read much crime fiction but the ones in series I ve read so far never really entice me into reading or collect all books in the series That s a different case with Cold Grave I honestly want to buy all Anya Crichton books just to get the same thrill all over again.The [...]

    Anyone who has read my reviews before knows that I don t hand out five stars to just anyone so you know that Kathryn Fox is something special From the moment I opened the front cover of this book to the time I closed it I was transported into the world of Anya Crichton She s perfect in that she has flaws, she has fears She s ordinary in the way that anybody can relate to her and extraordinary in the way that she s going to put it all out there for the sake of the victim Her past is mentioned in [...]

    Russell
    I attended a talk by the author when this book was first released Kathryn Fox is a skilled presenter, and the disccusion of her investigations into the cruise ship industry convinced me to read the book It took me a while to get my hands on a copy, and even longer to finish it I started with an audiobook for convenience but had to return it unfinished Finally, I tracked down a hard copy, which moved several times from bedside table to car and back again before I eventually sat down and read to t [...]

    Dr Anya Crighton and her ex are taking their son on a cruise so she can spend time with him, but the death of a teenage girl intervenesBit of a curate s egg this one I enjoyed the thread dealing with the death of the girl, bad behaviour and the use of drugs to sedate young women in order to make them sexually compliant The other main plot thread dealt with issues of pollution caused by cruise liners and their lack of accountability which is a valid subject but I felt it was a it too much in this [...]

    A fantastic holiday or weekend read.This was the first book of Kathryn Fox s I ve read, and I enjoyed it tremendously The plot was nicely built and driven, and it was an exciting read Anya s medical knowledge and descriptions made for an interesting and realistic character.That said, I felt that the story would have been even exciting and gripping with a few metaphors and literary techniques to really give it substance.Overall, I enjoyed it thoroughly and would definitely recommend it It s the [...]

    Carolyn
    Australia s Kathryn Fox is, like Kathy Reichs, a doctor turned author, and in my opinion, a better writer This book deals with issues such as the Law of the Sea, industrial and marine environmental problems associated with the burgeoning cruise industry and the appalling behaviour of certain passengers who feel they can flout moral and legal norms of conduct just because they are at sea The sexual assaults portrayed are sadly reminiscent of an actual case involving Australians a few years ago.Th [...]

    Another great crime thriller in this terrific series by the talented Kathryn Fox,I love her characters especially the lead character Anya Crichton I couldn t stop reading this great page turner to see what would happen next and I was suspicious of several people on this cruise ship I certainly wouldn t recommend this novel if you were about to go on a cruise as it surely would turn you off with gang rapes,drink spiking and murders not really the ideal holiday to say the least A great Aussie crim [...]
