Sometimes death is only the beginning of the story ... Professor Hayne, of the University of Grampian, Scotland, was a sick man, but his post-operative death seemed far from natural. Mistakes in both surgical and anaesthetic procedures suggested that someone intervened to make sure he didn’t survive. And sometimes two closed worlds collide when you look close enough ... DCI Jack Carston faces a united hospital staff insisting that the two fatal ‘errors’ couldn’t have happened. As he investigates further, Carston discovers that a student in Hayne's department, Sandra Scott, is being sexually harassed by a member of the department and targeted by a stalker. Leaving only shadows to reveal the truth… Politics makes for strange bedfellows in the world of academia and medical maneuvering. Following the convoluted strands takes Carston in unexpected directions as he unravels the mystery. What he finds is a final twist that surprises even him.
