Women are dying in Kerr Memorial Hospital. They are dying at an alarming rate from post-operative wound infections which are resistant to antibiotics and the authorities cannot find the source of the problem. As the situation threatens to get out of control, the hospital staff are under mounting pressure and nerves are stretched to breaking point.
The Home Office send an outsider, surgeon Scott Jamieson, to investigate and Jamieson soon finds himself in a maelstrom of accusation and counter-accusation. Is this outbreak the result of deliberate contamination or just a freak strain of bacteria? As he tiptoes through a minefield of explosive personalities, Jamieson begins to suspect that the truth might be far more horrific than anyone could have imagined in their worst nightmares.
