An aristocratic family hiding secrets - and murder.
Classic crime from 'One of American's favourite writers' Mary Higgins Clark
'Suspense to the very end' NEW YORK TIMES
Nurse Sarah Keate is no stranger to mystery - she has solved conspiracies and murders in places as varied as her once-sleepy hospital ward, a gothic mansion, and the Sand Hills of Nebraska. But the Thatchers are different. As close to aristocracy as an American family can get, one of their own requires Keate's care for a suspicious bullet wound to his right shoulder. A wound a relative insists was self-inflicted ...
When the victim dies under even stranger circumstances, Keate knows that he was murdered. As the family closes ranks and struggles to keep its darkest secrets buried, Nurse Keate will stop at nothing to find the truth - but at what cost?
