      A teeny bit disappointed with this one! Anya is still on top of her game and there are sufficient dead bodies and nasty people around, but I could not get along with the main story line about genetically modified foods. Fox seems to have quite strong feelings herself about the issue and a lot of time was spent on long political conversations. I am always uncomfortable when a fiction book tries to educate the reader in this way especially when some things are presented in quite a naive way. So I [...]

      I usually read Kathryns' books very quickly because I can't put them down, but I feel like I maybe missed something with this one. The story line of the organic farm and the genetically modified foods just didn't grab me. As bad as it sounds I was finally happy when someone was actually murdered in the book, it was like "Yes! We've got a body to work with!" Sorry Kathryn. I still love you and Anya. But no more E-Coli or spinach please. :)

    3. Kathryn on said:

      This was quite a different Anya Crichton to the rest of the series. It didn’t involve much domestic violence or sexual abuse, and it was based around political/environmental issues such as GM food and foreign multi-billion dollar corporations buying up large tracts of Australian land. It is obvious that these are issues that Kathryn Fox feels passionately about - if what she has written about increases in medical conditions when GM food was introduced to the food supply is true, it is scary. I [...]

    4. Paula Clark on said:

      Although this storyline didn't seem as forensically based as her previous novels, the storyline was one, I feel, everyone should be educated on. Personally I hold a real fear of the way the world is heading with regards to GMO's and the company portrayed in this novel screamed Monsanto to me.The potential that consumers could be eating genetically modified foods without knowing it, really scares me! Ultimately this is a work of "fiction", however this is a real issue!Apart from the GMO's I misse [...]

    5. David on said:

      A complicated plotline based around genetically modified foods and animals being pumped full of growth hormone, that meanders along without reaching the heights of some of Kathryn Fox's earlier books. It is obvious Fox feels strongly about (against) GM modified foods and I felt at times a line was crossed away from crime fiction and tending towards a political science lecture. I also found there were a lot of characters (and real estate transactions) to keep track of in this book, and I found my [...]

    6. Julie on said:

      I found this one a bit hard going as there were so many characters to keep straight and it wasn't the usual sexual assault plot, more government and business orientated. Still a great read but it required constant concentration.

    8. Mirren Hogan on said:

      Kathryn Fox writes a reasonably good story, although like so many authors, they get less good as they go along. The story in Fatal Impact is ok but I didn't really care all that much about the characters or the resolution. There were a few too many strings that it became a bit of a knot. My biggest problem with this book was the editing. Either Fox needs a better editor or she needs to listen to the one she has. The whole book was littered with minor, but annoying, editing issues. At times it's [...]

    9. Carianne Carleo-Evangelist on said:

      A really interesting book about nutrition meets crime and how the worlds intersect. I'm sad I'm finished with the Anya Crichton series, but really enjoyed getting to "know" her. I do find that I preferred the ones where she was with Kate, Peter Latham and others in Sydney vs. on location elsewhere. Nice to see her mom wasn't a total villain, but I found the latter focus on her and the Dengates left a lot unresolved, including her forensic physician role as well as that of Evie. I'm not one who i [...]

      I had forgotten how much I enjoy Dr. Anya Chrichton. To me, she's like an Australian version of Bones. I read a few reviews where readers didn't like the organic food/genetically modified portion but I found it fascinating. And somewhat scary. Do we really know what we are eating? Does it truly explain the surge in food allergies? Food for thought (pun intended lol).

    11. Michelle on said:

      My first book I have read by Kathryn Fox. Anya is in forensic pathologist who is asked to look into the death of a child. This leads her into organic farming, corruption and becoming sick due ro what they have eaten. The book covers a lot about farming practices, organics and GM foods. I found this rather interesting and enjoyed learning about it. Great characters especially in a small town.

    12. PJ on said:

      First, I think, get past the awful title. If I hadn't had the basics of the plot described to me before picking this story up, I would never have started it. No, it doesn't resemble an 80s action movie that should have Arnie or Bruce Willis in it. In fact, the title seems to have nothing to do at all with the plot, which is something I am very grateful for.Where Fatal Impact and Kathryn Fox shine is the story. The subject matter—organic agriculture and industrial farming—is something I'm ver [...]

    13. Ann on said:

      Wow! So much happening in a sleepy little Tasmanian town. Some parts of this story really stretched my imagination: important documents hidden in the chicken coop, houses bugged, cars and people incinerated etc, etc.Although this was a good yarn, the impact is lost when we all know the protagonist has to survive. Surely more people would have been affected by the infected spinach? And I have difficulty imagining a mother placing her dead child in a toy box.Too many issues were touched on in this [...]

      an okayish book set in America regarding forensic science and the solving of a crime

    15. Emjlkas on said:

      Started off really well but the plot was a little complicated and confusing. Still an enjoyable read just not as good as the ones I have previously read.

    16. Amanda on said:

      This was my first Dr. Anya Crichton book and according to other reviews I caught her at a bad time.She was only meant to be in Tasmania for a conference and to visit her mother but death and intrigue happen and Anya wears many hats in trying to sort it all out. Being a forensic pathologist she is expected to sort out all the things so it is far from a restful break. Her mother is talking nonsense AND there is a dead child in a toy box .Dr. C discovers the child died from a bacterial infection. T [...]

    17. Matt on said:

      Fox returns with another stellar mystery, filled with medical and theme-specific jargon, requiring a little thinking along with the reader's entertainment. While on Tasmania at a conference, Dr. Anya Crichton is approached by a woman seeking assistance for her missing daughter and grandchildren. What begins as a missing persons investigation soon turns into a homicide case, when one child is found dead and surrounded by blood. Is it murder or could there be another cause? When Crichton digs a li [...]

    18. Kelly on said:

      Another stunning read from Kathryn Fox.Once again, Fox has created a novel full of suspense with a sturdy storyline. I had a number of issues with this book though. I've quite enjoyed Fox's previous books for their thorough forensic detail. I've found Fatal Impact lacked that edge I've come to expect. I really enjoy the forensic aspect and was looking forward another forensically rich story, and I feel it missed that mark.I was also expecting more from Anya's personal life. After the way things [...]

    19. Alexandra Daw on said:

      Dubbed Australia's answer to Patricia Cornwell by the UK Daily Mail, this was my first Kathryn Fox. It is the 7th in the Dr Anya Crichton series but stands alone in its own right. We are introduced to Crichton, a forensic pathologist, delivering a lecture at a conference in her home state of Tasmania. Before too long, she is drawn into a suspected child abuse case that turns into a complicated web of murder, corporate cover ups and a heated environmental battle. As if this isn't enough, Dr Crich [...]

    20. Simone Sinna on said:

      Anya Crichton, forensic pathologist (as the cover says, Australia’s answer to Kay Scarpetta) is back and in Tasmania for a conference and to visit her parents, or estranged mother, also a doctor, more precisely. Fox is a GP and brings her medical knowledge into the book in spades; fatal EColi infections, and relatively rare immune diseases provide a subplot of ‘which illness is it’ to medical trained readers! The main plot has more than enough to keep you thinking though; GM modified foods [...]

    21. Joe Borg on said:

      A good book for the like-minded, essentially dealing with the intrigues of GM foods which are very real life and the rewards given to the people who push forward these foods . Unfortunately, it is with deep regret that I say that we as a nation sent a delegate to Europe who gave the OK to GM foods which had been barred for a long number of years.The settings of the book are also the fears and the possible mishaps with these products and is written within the current prevailing environment which [...]

    22. Marie on said:

      Although I enjoyed Fox's previous books I was disappointed with this installment. Fatal Impact lacked that edge I've come to expect. I've enjoyed the forensic aspect in the past but I feel it was missing here. I don't mind learning something/being educated with my crime novels but in this case I feel the mystery aspect suffered. The lectures on GM food were too heavy handed and continual. Yes there were good, vaild and important points to be made but Fox expatiated on the subject until it had a [...]

      3.5 starsNormally when I read Kathryn Fox I struggle to get started but persevere because they always get better. This book surprised me by hooking me straight away. However by the end I was finding it a little difficult to keep up with all the characters/suspects.On the plus side the chapters were fairly short, I think this helped with the 'keeping track'. Personally I like my crime novels to be grim with a psychotic twist and this just wasn't. It's an over used story about huge corporations bu [...]

    24. Julie scott on said:

      I came across Kathryn Fox's books on my Borrowbox and I love her series with forensic pathologist Dr Anya Crichton who is a great character. Fatal Impact is a well written and fast paced crime thriller that got me in from the very beginning. Anya travel's to Tasmania for a conference and to spend time with her mother but when à young child is found dead in a toy box covered in blood it looks like murder but is it gradually other people in the town are became very sick so Dr Anya will be staying [...]

    25. Pat on said:

      This is Kathryn Fox's best book for some time. I know that most reviewers don't agree with me but I think I really related to the subject matter. Set in Tasmania in a community divided over the benefits of GM crops it appeared to be really well researched. I found the arguments compelling and, knowing what some real corporations get up to in this field, can well believe the potential for corporate corruption with the potential pay-offs being so sky-high. Scary stuff actually. I'm glad I grow my [...]

    26. Amanda on said:

      I read one of Ms Fox' books last year and enjoyed it immensely, but this one disappointed.It seems that she has read a bit about some of the food security problems facing us today - including the issues around the massive feed-lots in the US (NOT here in Australia) and GM crops - and has lumped the whole lot together, setting her improbable tale in Tasmania. I doubt the Taswegians will thank her for this, given that Tasmania is actually GM free.The plot line was far too convoluted, the story far [...]

    27. Sallyann Van leeuwen on said:

      I was disappointed with this one. It started well, with the discovery of a body stashed in a toy box and the mother MIA. But this quickly became an inconsequential story, with the story going off in a completely other direction. Maybe it was a blurb issue, it wasn't an accurate representation of the book.

    28. Sheila on said:

      Over-the-top GM conspiracy theory, with the Chinese company and its Australian minions as bad guys, mixed in with lots of medical and pathological detail. Some errors that should have been picked up by an editor.That said, it rattled along and Anya, the main character, an Australian pathologist, is quite likeable. I guess I'll try another to see how it goes without the GM rant.

    29. Sandra on said:

      I normally give Kathryn Fox's books 4 stars, but this one just wasn't on a par with her others. I found the GM foods storyline interesting, but not gripping like her other books. I have to say I was a little disappointed with this book, and I had been so looking forward to another of Fox's books - maybe I was just expecting too much.every author is allowed a slightly lack lustre book.
