During the worst 'flu epidemic for fifty years, a student nurse is found dead in her room. But Golding, the forensic pathologist, believes that this wasn't as a consequence of the virulent infection... Under suspicion are the senior physician, revered by some and hated by others; the pathologist, from whose laboratory the poison had come; and the registrar, who gave the fatal injection... There is another murder before Inspector Newton tracks down the killer - and faces death in terrifying circumstances himself.
