As Willow King lies in her hospital bed giving birth to her first child, her obstetrician is found dead in the next-door room, face-down in his own birthing pool. To her he has always been charming, supportived reassuring, but someone hated him enough to hold his head under water until he drowned. She has to find out why.
Her husband, Superintendent Tom Worht, warns her that it is neither easy nor safe to pre-empt a murder investigation. But Willow cannot stop – even if she’s putting her own life, and that of her new daughter, at great risk.
