Susan Bayliss became notorious when she blew the whistle on her boss, a heart surgeon at a renowned children's hospital. She accused him of negligence, operations were stopped and an inquiry launched. In the end she was the one suspended as a troublemaker.
Now Dr Harry Kent, a medical examiner with the Met Police, has been called out to certify her suicide.
But something about the scene is wrong. Someone held Susan down...
The grieving parents of the children who died demand answers. The hospital is stonewalling. Everyone has secrets - it's up to Harry and DCI Frankie Noble to find out which were worth killing for.
I enjoyed this just as much as the first book, if not more. It was fantastic being back with Harry and his wreckage of a life.
Harry is asked to attend a suicide of a whistleblowing doctor. But for Harry it soon seems that things are not so straight forward. Then when it turns out to be murder, Harry must dig deeper to uncover the truth.
And dig is what Harry does, ending up teamed up with his ex girl friend DCI Frankie Noble. Things are not great between the two of them so working together certainly isn't going to be an easy ride.
One of the things I really enjoy with these books is the mix of Medical and Crime, it makes for a much more interesting read. The authors medical background is very clear thought out the book, and just adds to the story brilliantly.
I also find the fact that the main character Harry, having some serious issues really adds to the intensity of the story. You know somewhere along the line things have got to reach a head, and his addiction to prescription drugs is only going to cause problems if and when he is found out.
Another first class read, and I fear if I say anymore I will give far to much away. This book however is certainly must read, and I will say personally I really think reading book one first would be the best move.
I cant wait for more.
