About the Author:

she trained as a nurse in london and almost qualified as a midwife before changing her mind and turning to teaching. However, faced with the horrors of playground supervision duty, she quickly returned to her first choice and worked for many years as a district nurse and a health visitor.

From Booklist:

When chief surgeon Saul Ravenscroft is savagely murdered, the staff and patients of the Harmony Clinic are stunned. Detectives Tom Rydell, Denise Caldecote, and Ram Patel are assigned to the high-profile case. The top suspect is the clinic's PR guru, Carla Robins, who was the beneficiary of Saul's will. When Carla is also killed, it's clear the case is more complex than the police first thought. They're forced to start over again--interviewing suspects, sifting through clues, checking security camera videos--in the kind of slogging, patience-testing, painstaking search for that one missed clue that will break the case open. Then, by sheer coincidence, the killer is found and arrested, not by the three hardworking detectives, but by a traffic cop. Green has concocted an inventive plot with plenty of unexpected twists, and she's done an exceptional job of describing the hard slog of police work. But it's her cast of multidimensional characters, as well as her ability to make them come alive, that is this book's most winning quality. Emily Melton
