Now in paperback—China Bayles comes to the aid of a nurse who ends up in the hospital in the New York Times bestselling series.

China is renting her guest cottage to Kelly Kaufman, who needs a temporary place to live as she contends with a very acrimonious divorce. At the same time, as a nurse employed by a local hospice, Kelly has discovered instances of suspicious practices. Even more disturbing, she suspects that a patient was murdered. Kelly’s knowledge could be dangerous, and she wants to get guidance from China on what to do. But when Kelly is forced off the road and critically injured, putting her in a medically induced coma, it’s up to China to determine who wants her out of the picture.
