Cryogenicist Dr Georgette Watson has mastered the art of bringing frozen hamsters back to life. Now what she really needs is a body to confirm her technique can save human lives.

Meanwhile, in New York City, winter is closing in and there’s a killer on the loose, slaying strangers who seem to have nothing in common. Is it simple good fortune that Georgette, who freelances for the NYPD, suddenly finds herself in the company of the greatest detective of all time? And will Sherlock Holmes be able to save Dr Watson in a world that has changed drastically in 200 years, even if human nature has not?


'Not just for fans of Sherlock Holmes, the original premise and interesting mystery should appeal [to] a range of crime readers.' Book'd Out

'… Over My Dead Body is a witty, enjoyable tale that provides a new take on the Sherlock Holmes canon.' Murder, Mayhem and Long Dogs

'Very different to Warner’s usual rural noir novels, this is an enjoyable, clever mystery that moves briskly along and offers some good suspense and nice touches of humour. Terrific fun.' Canberra Weekly

'Dave’s is an outlandish story, but its conceit is fun, the murder mystery fast-paced and the exploration into cryonics still a hot topic in science circles.' Subiaco Post

'what Over My Dead Body has in spades is a fun, entertaining story, with great supporting characters' AustCrime
