A forensic physician fuels political uproar when she sticks to her findings
When bodies of immigrants begin to wash up on a Hastings beach, no one would envy police doctor Callie Hughes’ sad job of checking for vital signs or pronouncing death.
Hughes works alongside detectives DI Miller and DS Jeffries, slowly cataloguing some dozen deaths from a boat suspected to have capsized during an illegal crossing from France to England.
But one victim stands out to Hughes. Body number nine. It has several characteristics that mark it as different from the others. Could it be the body of a people smuggler?
Despite Dr Hughes having supplied crucial information about previous homicides, Miller and Jeffries are quick to dismiss her theories.
But without their backup, will her desire to get to the bottom of the case land her in deep trouble?
