When secrets get out, no one is safe . . .
On a crisp January morning, a group of third year nursing students gathers early for a clinical lesson. They have no idea that they are about to witness the gruesome murder of one of their classmates.
Before the month is over, another student turns up dead, this time of an apparent suicide. But could these deaths be connected? Superintendent Adam Dalgleish thinks so. Though the motive is carefully obscured by a web of secrets, blackmail, and lies, he is determined to uncover the truth – before the killer can strike again.
