A series of horrifying murders rips through a sanatorium – and only the patients can stop the killings. ‘Baffling crimes, brilliant writing’ SATURDAY REVIEW
‘Quentin is a craftsman of the first class’ TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
Peter Duluth turned to drink after his wife’s untimely death; now, two years later and desperate to dry out, he enters a sanitorium, hoping to turn his life around. But he doesn’t quite get the calm relaxation he expected. Strange, malevolent occurrences plague the hospital – and Peter hears his own voice crying out the warning ‘There will be murder.’
With a murderer is on the loose, and the staff every bit as erratic as the idiosyncratic patients, everyone is a suspect – including Peter, who is desperate to clear his name before the killer strikes again.
