Rubbernecker by Belinda Bauer

In life Sam Galen, patient 19, and Patrick Fort would never have crossed paths. Sam is in the hospital recovering from a car accident, #19 is the cadaver he becomes and which Patrick Fort and his fellow anatomy students are dissecting. Patrick, who may well have Asperger’s and is misunderstood as a result, doesn't care what Professor Madoc or the team at Cardiff University say. The dead can still reveal what killed them, and in #19's case, all signs point to murder. Patrick has until the end of the 22-week course to solve a crime none of the other students even suspect. A great medical murder mystery with an emotional punch you won't see coming. – Paula Longhurst
