At a prestigious research centre fondly known by its staff as the 'Hug', parts of a mutilated body are found. Lieutenant Carmine Delmonico of the Holloman Police learns that a string of horrifying murders – each with the same modus operandi as the one at the Hug – have been commited throughout the state. When another body is found, the medical staff become prime suspects. With the powers that be in turmoil and every member of staff hiding something, Delmonico must delve into the lives of each and every Hug employee.

Brilliant read! Typical Colleen McCullough, always a most unexpected twist at the end! The content of her books is so diverse it's so exciting to come across a book I haven't read!

Involved you from the start with the characters and kept you in suspense till the last. Teasing details made you guess, but there were plenty of surprises. Thoroughly good read - the sort you really don't want to finish - yet do!

Quite a change from previous books by Ms McCullough's that I have read. This one reminded me of Kathy Reich novels. Definitely .a page-turner.I enjoyed it and it kept me guessing all the way to the end.
