The Doctor Blake Mysteries

Dr Lucien Blake returns home to Australia after 30 years to take over his dead father's general medical practice in the country town of Ballarat. As he deals with his own personal loss, the wry, personable doctor performs his other role as police surgeon with gusto. His unconventional and unpredictable manner unnerve some, but it soon becomes clear Dr Blake is ahead of his time in his use of forensic science and that he possesses keen deduction skills. Is it any wonder that he's usually one step ahead of the detectives when it comes to solving murder mysteries?
