When Cassandra Cassidy meets Thomas Kingsley, it’s love at first sight for both of them. Deeply in love, the two gifted doctors are soon married. As Cassandra’s degenerative eye disease forces her to switch from her chosen field to psychiatry she tries to make the best of her situation.
Around other people he is wonderful, but as he begins a meteoric rise in the hospital, alone with her, Thomas is hostile and full of rage. Soon, the fairytale begins to crumble. Desperate to save her marriage, Cassandra spends more time around the hospital, which is being menaced itself. There is an ‘Angel of Death’ stalking and killing the terminal patients. Against her husband’s furious objections, Cassandra takes it upon herself to catch a killer; the discovery of whom opens the floodgates of unimaginable horror.
I enjoyed this story more than I thought I would. I give it an A!
