A toxic marriage has consequences for everyone. Nicholas Anderton is a highly respected neurosurgeon at the top of his field. But behind the successful façade all is not well. Tormented by a toxic marriage and haunted by past mistakes, Anderton has been eating to forget. His wife, meanwhile, has turned to drink. There are sniggers behind closed doors—how can a surgeon be fat, they whisper; when mistakes are made and his old adversary Nash steps in to take advantage, Anderton knows that things are coming to a head.


"This slim novel asks some big questions, with compassion, wry humour and elegant, understated prose." —Kate Vane, author, Still You Sleep

"The beautiful writing pulled me right into this book. I loved how the story unfolded, each thread carefully unravelled. The characters had true psychological depth, and the relationships between them were so life-like." —Sophie Van Llewyn, author, Bottled Goods

"I loved Inside the Bone Box: the visual imagery is excellent, and as a radiographer before bookselling I really appreciated the fine details of neurosurgery." —Georgia Duffy, owner of Imagined Things bookshop, Harrogate

"Very accurate with respect to the medical and surgical aspects of the storyline." —Nick Thomas, Consultant Neurosurgeon
