Short Summary

When one of her ICU patients dies unexpectedly, amateur sleuth Ginny Forbes finds herself on the trail of a centuries-old secret that is of no importance and no interest to anyone other than herself. Except, of course, that no tale of secrets is ever that simple.

Ginny survives the attack on her life, but must face the aftermath and rebuild what has been lost. This is the first in a series of mysteries featuring Ginny Forbes and other characters from the Loch Lonach community.
