The year is 1999. Returning to practice after a suspension for stealing opioids, a young Scottish doctor takes the only job he can find: a post as a senior house officer in the struggling east London hospital of St Luke's. Amid the maelstrom of sick patients, over-worked staff and underfunded wards a darker secret soon declares itself: too many patients are dying. Which of the medical professionals our protagonist has encountered is behind the murders? And can our unnamed narrator's version of the events be trusted?

Entertaining and clever thriller that keeps up the surprises right to the end. You'll probably have a good idea who the killer is, but there are lots of other mysteries to be solved. Not least is the question why do people in the medical profession sometimes choose to kill rather than cure? The brief interludes about historical medical serial killers give extra depth to this question.
