Synopsis:

It's been a good summer for forensics expert Dr David Hunter. His relationship is going well and he's in demand again as a police consultant. Life is good. Then a call comes from an old associate: a body has been found; and she'd like Hunter to take a look. The empty shell of St Jude's Hospital now stands awaiting demolition; its only visitors society's outcasts; addicts and dealers. A partially mummified corpse has been discovered in the hospital's cavernous loft; but not even Hunter can say how long it's been there. All he knows for sure is that it's the body of a young woman. And that she was pregnant. But the collapse of the loft floor reveals another of the hospital's secrets. A sealed-off chamber; still with beds inside. Some of them occupied... For Hunter; what began as a straightforward case is about to become a twisted nightmare that threatens everyone around him. And as the investigation springs more surprises; one thing is certain. St Jude's hasn't claimed its last victim . . . With its viscerally authentic forensics; menacing atmosphere and nerve-shredding tension; Simon Beckett's new crime thriller will leave you gasping.
