Terminus

(1990)
(The second book in the Tom Jones series)
A novel by

 
 
'Pacy, well written, and a chillingly believable premise.' - Marcel Berlins, The Times.

The doctors and nurses at St John's Hospice are some of the most admired citizens in any community.

But would one of them use their position to steal and sell heroin? And why?

A nurse writes to the DHSS claiming just that, before she is killed in a suspicious gas explosion.

Investigator Tom Jones goes undercover at the hospice to get to the truth.

Posing as the representative of a charity, Jones discovers a hospice staff rife with dissension and when forced to break his own cover, he soon finds himself in danger too.

A page-turning and revealing medical thriller by a master in the genre.

Praise for the author.

'Pacy, well written, and a chillingly believable premise.' - Marcel Berlins, The Times.

'Impossible to put down.' - West Somerset Free Press.

'With a hint of romance, a dramatic climax and a twist in the tail, it proved a most enjoyable read.' - Anne Miller, Police Box.

'An all-too-plausible story of a Scottish nationalism group mounting a death-by-blood-transfusion terror campaign' - Peterborough Evening Telegraph.

Andrew Puckett worked in the NHS for twenty-one years, fifteen of them as microbiologist for the Oxford Blood Transfusion Centre, before turning to writing and teaching. His other novels include 'Deliver Them From Evil', 'Death Before Time' and 'Sisters of Mercy'.
