Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a London hospital, Prudence Barrymore, a talented nurse who had once been one of Florence Nightingales angels of mercy in the Crimean War, meets sudden death by strangulation. Private inquiry agent William Monk is engaged to investigate this horrific crime-which intuition tells him was no random stroke of violence by a madman.

Greatly helped by his unconventional friend Hester Latterly, another of Miss Nightingales nurses, and barrister Oliver Rathbone, Monk assembles a portrait of the remarkable woman. Yet he also discerns the shadow of a tragic evil that darkens every level of society, and a frightening glimmer of his own eclipsed past.

Synopsis:

In the Royal Free of London Hospital, death is an enemy; it is very unusual that somebody be assassinated. When the corpse of nurse Barrymore is discovered in a laundry basket, the police turn a blind eye towards Dr. Kristian Beck's probable guilt, just because he is a foreigner. The commission that directs the hospital orders the case to be investigated. As the investigation advances, everyone will begin to doubt the impartiality of justice.
