In Addie Gorsky’s latest murder mystery, the resourceful private eye faces her greatest challenge yet.
Tender Mercies Psychiatric Hospital is one of the darker places in the Sunshine State, so no one’s surprised when young college student Elena Santos dies while under its care.
Though Elena’s death appears to result from a severe allergic reaction, the family asks PI Addie Gorsky to investigate. Though still mourning her father’s death, Addie takes on the case, expecting to find evidence of neglect or malpractice.
Then the inconsistencies surrounding Elena’s death start piling up, with the tight-lipped and paranoid staff blocking the investigation at every turn.
When a second person dies, Addie finds herself in a deadly chess match with an unseen opponent, a grand master of murder always one step ahead.
Will Addie find a way to defeat this ruthless killer before another life is lost?
