Santrauka: Formerly a busy hospital, St. Jude's now stands derelict, awaiting demolition. These days its only visitors are addicts and dealers, those on the very fringes of society. So when a partially mummified corpse is found in the hospital's cavernous loft, the police believe it must be the result of a tragicaccident or a drugs deal gone wrong. Forensics expert Dr David Hunter can't say how long the body has been there but it's of a young woman. And that she was pregnant. It soon becomes clear that the hospital has yet to give up all of its secrets. The sudden collapse of the attic floor reveals a bricked-up chamber, with beds still inside. Some of them are occupied... For Hinter, what began as a straightforward case is about to become a twisted nightmare that threatens everyone around him. And as the investigation springs more surprises, one thing is certain: St Jude's hasn't claimed its last victim... Chilling, viscerally authentic and brilliantly paced, Simon Beckett's new crime thriller will leave you gasping.
