It seems a serial killer is at large and the modus operandi points to the murderer being a medic. Vincent Cardoni, a brilliant but unpopular surgeon, is suspected and certain pieces of evidence found in his apartment make the police believe they have a solid case. But the trial collapses when an officer lies on oath and Cardoni disappears, having firmly stated his belief that he was set up by his estranged wife, Justine, who is also a surgeon.

A few years later another death occurs, the body being found in exactly the same circumstances as the previous victims, but this time Justine is under suspicion and when her defence attorney discovers she has been 'widowed' twice before in suspicious circumstances her proclaimed innocence begins to look very shaky - until other killings are revealed, killings when both she and her ex-husband were known to be elsewhere. So who is the murderer?

Here's what you say about us...

Phillip Margolin was a prominent criminal defence attorney in Oregon before turning to full-time writing. He has been an Edgar nominee and Ed Harris starrred in the movie of The Last Innocent Man.

The particulars of the killings are so similar to the first set of murders that Amanda is convinced Cardoni is involved. When he is found to be working at the same hospital where he was once a promising surgeon (this time as a custodian and under an assumed name), she draws the logical conclusion. But when she finds Cardoni's severed hand at the scene of the crimes, she is forced to rethink the assumptions on which her defence of the doctor's ex-wife is based. Could Justine, in fact, be the killer? Author Phillip Margolin's newest book moves at an almost frantic pace. Bodies pile up, evidence mounts, and everything points to Cardoni's guilt until the end, a stunner that surprises Amanda as well as the reader. This chilling, deftly crafted novel will hold the reader's attention to the last page.
