But can you ever be forgiven for the sins of your past?

Only her lawyer, Keira Lynch, can keep that from happening. What they don't realise, though, is that Keira isn't your typical Glasgow lawyer.

Their job is to put themselves in the heart of danger – to risk their own lives as they try to save the dying.

Yet, more often than not, what they do goes unnoticed – except by those who survive because of their extraordinary courage and skill.
