(From the publisher):
A killer of a cure…
For psychiatrist Kellen Stewart, rock climbing in the craggy Scottish landscape is a way to test herself. It is also a means of escape from the stress of her job in the newly formed hospice unit in one of Glasgow’s biggest hospitals. But halfway up a sheer cliff-face four hundred feet above the ocean, Kellen and her pathologist friend, Lee Adams, find something even more harrowing than the drop behind them. It’s the broken body of a friend and fellow doctor. How could he – the most brilliant climber of them all – have fallen? And what was he doing climbing alone?
Working closely with Lee, Kellen finds that an autopsy of their friend’s body produces more questions than answers. Soon they are faced with two more puzzling cadavers. Both victims are physicians. Both were put to death subtly, with rare medical sophistication. Now Kellen is drawn onto a twisted trail of dangerous passions and deadly secrets, a trail left by a killer who’s already written a prescription for murder.
