Set in Bath, this is the third atmospheric and elegant psychological thriller to feature international cellist, Sara Selkirk.
The discovery of a murdered Japanese tourist in a Bath pub appears to be just another complication in Sara Selkirk's life. Her developing relationship with DCI Andrew Poole is under enough strain already, ever since she brought her former teacher Joyce Cruikshank under her roof. Not to mention her dog Pretzel. Sara seems to have found the perfect solution when she finds a job for Joyce at a private health clinic where her distinguished pianist friend James Ballantyne is a reluctant patient. The Sulis Clinic, combining naturopathy, modern medicine, creative therapies and the beautiful surroundings of the historic spa town of Bath, enjoys a remarkable success rate. So why isn't James getting any better? And where is Joyce slipping off to every day? As Sara delves into the mysteries surrounding the clinic, one thing becomes clear: Pretzel the Dachshund isn't the only one in danger.
