When a number of distinguished members of government committees are found dead in suspicious circumstances, it falls to DCI Kate Duncan to discover what the connecting factor is.

A series of anonymous letters suggested that Dame Imelda Sharpe might have been murdered. An exhumation of the body revealed the presence of a prescription drug not mentioned in her medical records.

Mark Lawson's deftly plotted murder-mystery gets to grips with a major concern at the heart of our cash-strapped NHS: the post code lottery and exactly who is to be considered deserving of the most expensive life saving drugs on the market.
