Dr Warr’s decayed corpse is found in the woods. He worked at the local psychiatric hospital, but vanished over a year ago without a trace. People blamed his disappearance on a mental breakdown.

There have always been whispers about Newman Hospital. Staff brutality, deliberate misdiagnosis. DI Gilbert Markham and his right-hand man, DS Noakes begin asking questions. They are met with a chilling silence. It seems the people in power know more than they are letting on.

Another staff member is found in the annals of the hospital, strangled to death. How many more victims will be claimed before the vengeful killer is found?

DS Kate Burton, will fight for her life as Markham tries to stop the bloodshed.

The Detectives

DI GILBERT (‘GIL’) MARKHAM
DI Markham is a startlingly talented detective rising through the ranks of Bromgrove CID. He is distant and austere — the product of a profoundly difficult childhood — but has a natural magnetism which inspires loyalty. He clashes with his slippery boss, DCI Sidney, who prioritises the force’s public image.

DS GEORGE (‘NOAKESY’) NOAKES
DS Noakes is a slobbish, uncouth and outspoken Yorkshireman, an object of despair to his superiors. He is, however, also a man of hidden depths, with a sensitive streak and a secret flair for ballroom dancing. Markham sees through his philistinism and they form an unstoppable partnership.

My Review

This is the final book in the Detective Markham mini series.

A body is found and it turns out to be the body of a doctor who disappeared from a Mental Hospital a year earlier.  It was assumed the disappearance was the result of depression and that he had made a new life elsewhere or committed suicide.  Tests reveal neither of these was the case and he was in fact murdered.

Markham is tasked with investigating that and also a ‘secret’ investigation involving corruption.  As is usual when Markham is around more bodies turn up and the team is up against time to crack the case before more people lose their lives.

A steadily moving detective series that keeps the readers’ interest as we follow the investigation around the twists, turns and lies all the way to the surprising ending.
