Description

The author of No Comfort for the Lost returns with a new mystery of Old San Francisco...
British-born nurse Celia Davies runs a free medical clinic to assist the poor women of San Francisco. Aided in her endeavors by her half-Chinese cousin Barbara and feisty housekeeper Addie, Celia has earned the trust and friendship of many of the city's downtrodden, including a young orphan named Owen--who's just confided to her that he's stumbled upon a corpse.
Owen recently started working for the ruthless real estate and development group, Martin and Company, and discovered a dead body in the office's basement. Celia turns to Detective Nick Greaves for help, only to learn that one of the main suspects--the husband of Celia's dearest friend--is an old enemy of Nick's.
Now, Celia and Nick must put aside their personal feelings about the case--and each other--if they're going to bring a killer to justice...
