3.5 Stars People are being murdered with a surgical scalpel. Special Prosecutor Jana Berzelius is in charge of the investigation looking for this serial killer. Are these random killings? Is there a connection between the victims? Jana finds an old case .. a patient was badly damaged during a surgery. The physician lost his license to practice. Now these murders are happening in the same medical community. Is there a connection? Revenge, maybe? The Special Prosecutor finds that the death of her mother may be linked in some way. She has secrets of her own that she doesn't want to see the light of day. It becomes a race to catch the killer before another victim is taken. This was a slow starter with multiple characters vying for attention. it did pick up speed about halfway through the book. I'm glad I stuck with it, because it became really interesting and the suspense builds until the surprising ending. Many thanks to the author / HarperCollins / Edelweiss for the advanced digital copy of this crime fiction. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
