A superbly strong read` The Times What began as a straightforward case is about to become a twisted nightmare . . . Once a busy hospital, St Jude`s now stands derelict, awaiting demolition. When a partially mummified corpse is found in the building`s cavernous loft, forensics expert Dr David Hunter is called in to take a look. He can`t say how long the body`s been there, but he is certain it`s that of a young woman. And that she was pregnant. Then part of the attic floor collapses, revealing another of the hospital`s secrets: a bricked-up chamber with beds inside. And some of them are still occupied. And it soon becomes clear that St Jude`s hasn`t claimed its last victim . . . Chilling, visceral and masterfully paced, Simon Beckett`s new crime thriller will leave you gasping.
