A young woman is found dead in her home by a co-worker and her body looked burnt from the top of her head to the soles of her feet but there were no signs of fire anywhere around the house.
A consultant pathologist, Mark Hartmann was hired to do the autopsy on Millicent Sweet, a laboratory assistant, it seems a case much like any other. However, his first findings are shocking and before he can discuss this with his colleagues, he was called to Scotland for a conference, where he got drunk and ends up sleeping with one of the sales reps.
Blackmailed by a pharmaceutical company that threatens to send a video of his indiscretion to his wife, he falsifies his report on Millicent Sweet’s death. But they are not the only people interested in Sweet… Her father, convinced his daughter’s death is the result of a laboratory accident, has contacted lawyer Helena Flemming.
John Eisenmenger, a former forensic pathologist, Helen’s partner, looks into the case, he soon uncovers the findings of Hartmann’s original autopsy report. They find a conspiracy that involves a new and potentially devastating weapon; it is a conspiracy that ruthless men will do anything to keep hidden… and the reasons for the pharmaceutical company’s ruthless determination to disguise the truth about Millicent’s death.
