The Pain Nurse Publisher's Summary

Cheryl Beth Wilson, a nurse at Cincinnati Memorial Hospital, finds a doctor brutally murdered in a secluded office. Wilson had been having an affair with the doctor's husband, a surgeon, and now she is a "person of interest" if not an outright suspect. But someone other than the police is also watching Cheryl Beth.

The murder comes as former homicide detective Will Borders is just out of surgery. But as his stretcher is wheeled past the crime scene, he knows this is no random act of violence - in fact, it has all the marks of a serial-killer case he supposedly solved years before. Unable even to walk, Borders starts to investigate, teaming up with Cheryl Beth, who is desperate to clear her name. But as the killer grows closer, the two are running out of time to unlock the secrets of the murder at the brooding, old hospital.

    Cincinnati homicide detective Will Borders now walks with a cane and lives alone in constant discomfort. He’s lucky to be alive. He’s lucky to have his job as public information officer for the department. But when a star cop is brutally murdered, Borders is assigned to find her killer. The crime bears a chilling similarity to killings on the once peaceful college campus nearby, where his friend Cheryl Beth Wilson teaches nursing. The two young victims were her students. Most homicides are routine, the suspects readily apparent. But there are no obvious suspects in this new case.
