Something is very wrong at Nina Crawford's veterinary surgery on the outskirts of Glasgow. Despite all her medical efforts, a deadly strain of bacteria is killing every horse that passes through her operating theatre. And the vicious nightmares that once plagued Nina have returned, pushing her to the very brink of suicide--unless her psychiatrist and friend Kellen Stewart can save her from going over the edge.
Kellen is mystified. Why, after such steady progress, should Nina's mental state deteriorate? Even more deaths at Nina's surgery and a suspicious fire at her home threaten to crumble Nina's fragile defenses. It's a case that will push Kellen over a line she never thought she'd cross--and before it's over, she'll risk not only her profession, but her very life.
