Used to the sleepy tranquillity of village life in rural Wales, the residents of Felinbach are shocked by the brutal killing of a local baby, Anne-Marie Palmer. None more so than Dr Tom Gordon, the local GP and only friend left to John Palmer who, faced with irrevocable evidence, stands accused of his daughter's murder.
Just days later Tom is co-opted to investigate the disappearance of the body of a three-month-old cot-death victim from Caernarfon General's Pathology Department. But the hospital is anxious to keep publicity firmly on their upcoming symposium on in-vitro fertilisation, headed by world-renowned specialist Professor Carwyn Thomas, so Tom's investigations seem thwarted at every turn. That is, until he makes the chilling discovery that Professor Thomas has more than a passing interest in the murder of little Anne-Marie Palmer . . . and seems to be prepared to go to any lengths to stop Tom finding out why.
Suddenly a disturbing link between the murder of the Palmer baby, the missing body of a child and the IVF clinic at Caernarfon General begins to emerge. And with John Palmer about to be tried for a murder Tom is sure he didn't commit, things are starting to look desperate - and dangerous - for all of them.
