Synopsis This second installment in Jonathan Gash's brilliant new mystery series that critics have called "cause for rejoicing" (Kirkus Reviews) finds the beautiful doctor-cum-detective Clare Burtonall working the late shift at the city hospital. Just before dying, a young patient whispers to Clare a message she wants delivered to her boyfriend, Jase: "Forgive." Clare's search for the young man leads her to the seldom-seen, sinister underbelly of London. Without the help of Bonn, the very erotic, high-priced male prostitute who has become her "partner," Clare knows this would be a place she could not navigate.
But what Clare doesn't know could kill her: Jase, a deadly accurate gunman, is convinced that she caused his girlfriend's death and he's seeking revenge. Only Bonn, with his street savvy and unsavory connections, stands between Clare and a swift, merciless fate.
