A month after Kate Randall, chief local agitator of CAMEX (the Campaign Against Medical Experimentation), complains to DCI Alec Stainton (Fetch Out No Shroud, etc.) that someone is determined to discredit CAMEX by harassing its leaders--threatening a malpractice suit against gynecologist Ginnie Kemp, leaking a falsely fiery CAMEX memo to the police, accusing Judy Baker, discarded wife of MP hopeful Miles Wetherby, of abusing their son Trooper--Kate is found dead in Judy's car following a ferocious storm. Was she the latest victim of her archenemy Medisearch Labs? Or did her killer mistake her for troubled Judy? Murray develops the unsavory secrets of his large cast with the dexterity of the early Ruth Rendell--in his most ambitious book yet.
