Angel Without Mercy

(The first book in the Agnes Carmichael series)
A novel by

In the hospital of St. Jude's, nobody likes Marion Hughes...

As the night duty's Superintendent Nurse, Miss Hughes is feared and loathed by all when she goes on her rounds.

If there's one little thing she thinks wrong, no matter how small, she will find it, report it and hold it over your head.

For Nurse Carmichael, who desperately wants to get away from the children's ward and into a Sister's position, a bad report from Miss Hughes could end her career prospects in a heartbeat.

For Nurse Hiram Jones, it means being caught stealing sleeping pills for his addicted lover, John.

As Hiram works on the male geriatric ward, it's easy enough to blame the memories of the old buggers. But he knows Miss Hughes isn't fooled.

What's more, Miss Hughes is willing to bend and abuse the rules when it suits her - like getting in Sir James Hatfield for an emergency night surgery.

Sir James has been recently widowed and Miss Hughes is more than determined to make him 'Mr. Right' - even if it means dragging up his unfortunate past.

Meanwhile, Miss Hughes is also sure she recognises the new registrar surgeon, Nigel Denton, from something very salacious. She can't quite place where though.

But no matter, even if Miss Hughes hasn't got dirt on Nigel, she'll certainly vocally disapprove of his more than casual drinking after surgery.

Even the janitors and the cleaning lady, Mrs Upton, are not free from Miss Hughes' pernickety demands.

Her attitude may rub both staff and patients the wrong way - earning her many a derogatory nickname - but Miss Hughes' efficiency keeps her a hospital staple.

It seems they will never get rid of the so-called, 'angel' without mercy.

But when tensions are this high and so many people, have so much to lose; it only takes one person to finally snap...

Reminiscent of Patricia Highsmith, Angel Without Mercy is a tense psychological thriller.
