(The second book in the Rae Spears Mystery series)
A novel by

Rae Spears, Head of Neurology at St Matthew's Hospital, opens her post to find a tongue in a Jiffy bag, along with a cipher which she is meant to solve. Her old lover, Inspector Ted Rimmer, tells her that a woman, Elizabeth Hall, has been abducted, but the severed tongue is not hers.

Further ciphers are received and two more women are found brutally murdered and mutilated. Rae is told she has thirty six hours to find the abducted woman. Still coming to terms with the death of her beloved husband and narrowly surviving a murder case in her previous hospital.

Rimmer has his suspects including Elizabeth's husband, Eddie, but the police have no evidence to pin the abduction or any of the murders on him. The race is still on for Rae to find her.

Confused and bewildered by various things she uncovers about her colleagues, Rae even suspects Rimmer and the reticent pathologist at the hospital whom she later learns has a dubious past. Feeling more and more isolated and desperate, Rae turns to one of her patients, Jack Goodman, for help. He is severely autistic but gifted with codes. However, soon after approaching him, Jack goes missing.

Suspended from work for bringing the hospital into disrepute and shunned by her colleagues, Rae realises that she has endangered her patient's life. With her reputation in tatters and very much alone, she knows she must break the codes and find Jack and Elizabeth at all cost before time runs out for them even if it means putting her own life in danger once again.

In this thrilling story with unexpected twists, Alexandra Connor has once again managed to hold the reader at the edge of the seat right up to its climatic end.
