Publisher's Summary

Dr. Toby Harper works the night shift in an emergency room. She spends her daytime hours alone with her mother who suffers from Alzheimer's disease. When elderly Alzheimer's patients from the same retirement home start dying mysteriously, Toby is the only one suspicious enough to investigate. As a result she finds herself, her mother, and her own sanity at risk.


What the Critics Say

"Grabs you and holds you from page one....Be prepared to drop all your obligations until you finish." (John Saul)

Very Engaging!!

Tess Gerritsen is a great mystery writer. I have read her work in the past and this is the first audible book of hers that I have bought. The narrator is good and the character development is great. If you are looking for something that will entertain you and allow long drives to fly by, this is for you.
