A Hint of Murder - The Doctor by Lia Fairchild
The problem of hospital ward overcrowding seems to be taken seriously by a serial patient killer……..but what's the pattern, the reason and who out of the 5 suspects has motive enough to take the lives of innocent bystanders? These are the questions that the detectives have to solve.
It doesn't seem possible in a short story to be able to provide much character development, but Lia is very skilful in choosing just the right information to compile a well-defined conception of each of the characters. So much so, that you are kept guessing right to the very end.
More please, Lia, these are getting addictive.
