Publisher's Summary

Something sinister is going on in the neonatal intensive care unit of a prominent Boston hospital. When Joyce Lattimer begins caring for the infants there, she discovers that someone is murdering them. She and her friend, Nancy, uncover evidence showing that Martha Ryan is probably responsible for the deaths of at least 20 infants. The hospital administrators refuse to believe that one of their own would do such a horrible thing and their solution is to upgrade the NICU to all RNs which removes Martha, who is an LPN, from the unit. Martha is moved to the pediatric unit where she continues to create problems. Dissatisfied with their solution, Joyce continues to probe for the truth only to begin receiving threats to her family and friends.Trying to protect those she loves and the children at the hospital becomes her obsession and her downfall.

I didn't see that one coming

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book. Although slow to start, the story gained momentum and grew in suspense. I was on the edge of my seat until the end. The author keeps us guessing who the killer is throughout the book. I didn't know from one chapter to the next if she was going to introduce another suspect.

Have you listened to any of Lori J. Moran’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This was my first by her.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved the growing romance between Joyce and James. It was sweet and proper. We don't see that too often anymore.

Any additional comments?

I loved the overall story, and the compassion Joyce shows toward her patients, and her determination to stop the killer. This is my second book by Sandra Olson I've listened to, and while I felt it could have a stronger start, the second half of the book captured me. I'm glad I continued listening.
