Seven patients. One dark secret.

Philip Walton has been murdered.

Jenny Nilsen hasn’t seen her former psychiatrist Phil since she left the Hillside Psychiatric Unit eight years ago. She wanted to forget everything about her time there, so she kept her secrets buried deep. Especially from her new husband.

But now the police are knocking at her door with evidence of her involvement in Phil’s death and everything she’s kept hidden is starting to spill out. Jenny desperately needs to speak to old friends, and old enemies, from those dark years at Hillside to clear her name before more of her past is unearthed and her new life is destroyed.

Because they are the only ones who know what really happened at Hillside. About the secret that Philip kept for them all.

And this is not the first murder.
