Publisher's Summary

A gunman is at large, stalking the halls of a local hospital. No one knows who he is or why he is there, and the best men in the force have been tasked to stop him.
Among them is Aden, determined to do the right thing. For hospital psychologist Imogen, weighed down by troubles of her own, the presence of the gunman seems to have little to do with her, but she couldn’t be more wrong....

One of my favourite reads this year so far

What a great read - couldn't tear myself away.
The book tells the events leading up to a mass shooting at a local hospital through the eyes of various different characters involved in the incident. I loved Kavanagh's characterisations - her protagonists were real and believable as their motives and interpersonal relationships unfolded. I felt I could have kept reading to see how some of them fared and was sad when it ended.
I listened to the audio version of this book and despite the jumping timeline and the different POV's had no trouble following the story.
One of my favourites this year so far - will have to read more from this author.

Hmmmm

I was very excited to listen to this book but found the jumping around of data too much. This is as muchof a problem for me as the story was good. Someone recommended writing a synopsis which defeats listening!

Bit of a mess

To be honest I found this a bit of a mess, there were just far too many switches in narrative to characters that I just did not care about. There were also ambiguous references to timelines that meant is was often impossible to know exactly which period the current passage referred to.

In the end it became one of those books that I just wanted to be over rather than wanting it to continue for ever which probably says all you need to know.
