For the dead girl is the daughter of a high-profile American heart surgeon, in Dublin to head the Mercy Hospital's new Heart Foundation. America is baying for justice. Superintendent Jim Clarke heads the investigation. His team picks up the trail of a suspect. But do they have the right man? Frank Clancy, consultant haematologist to the Mercy hospital, is concerned about the deaths of two patients. When he decides to take a closer look he places his own life in terrible danger...
Three patients have died in Dublin's Mercy Hospital from a very rare blood disorder. Haemotologist Dr Frank Clancy decides to find out why. The 18-year-old daughter of an American doctor is then found stabbed to death in a Dublin park. Two seemingly unrelated incidents converge during Dr Clancy's investigations, which take him to America. Carson's second novel is well constructed and finely paced. An enjoyable read. (Kirkus UK)
