Publisher's Summary

Australia's best-loved storyteller delivers her most addictive - and chilling - novel yet.

At Connecticut's most prestigious medical research institute, something is very wrong. It's the 1960s and America is in ferment, but at the Hug, the daily business of research continues, and the hierarchies of power remain undisturbed. That is, until the body of a woman is found in one of the animal research laboratories one morning - and then another.

The best-selling author of The Thorn Birds and Angel Puss delivers an edge-of-the-seat thriller with many a twist and turn as the lives - and pasts - of those in this little university town unravel.

Critic Reviews

"Australian McCullough (The Thorn Birds) portrays one of the creepiest serial killers in recent fiction in this intelligent shocker...." (Publishers Weekly)
