The cause of death: strangulation. Detective Gil Markham and Detective George Noakes discover the victim wasn’t short of enemies. Rumors swirl about her crooked MP father and her own ruthless ambitions. And no one is afraid to speak ill of the dead.
Then the killer strikes again. And again. And again.
Each victim works at the centre, yet they have nothing else in common. An arrogant administrator, a kindly midwife, a gentle, empathetic counsellor. What is the connection? Markham and his team race to uncover who will be next on the kill list.
