Andrew Puckett weaved and tangled a worrying web in this thriller. Set in a modern day hospital just outside Birmingham, the ITU attached to a Cardiac Unit is experiencing some unexpected but not unexplainable deaths. There is nothing suspicious, after all patients are recovering from major surgery or major cardiac events and these things can happen. Sister Josephine is not suspicious but feels something more than coincidence and a blip in statistics is the reason for some deaths.
She sets about gathering her information but her immediate superior does not see her concerns over these natural, sudden, regrettable but understandable demises. The Police do not see the evidence of foul play. But when a Home Office investigator knocks on her door, like Josephine, he feels something does not add up.
The two peruse their suspicions and take us mere mortals down the perilous route of plausibility, believability and wonder.
