A new and gripping psychological thriller with a medical twist, perfect for fans of Harriet Tyce, B A Paris and Doctor Foster. Care giver, life saver… or cold-blooded killer? Running away from a past she’d rather forget, Doctor Alison Wilson has moved to a new town to take up the role of Medical Officer at failing hospital St Margaret’s. Tasked with shaking things up, she quickly learns that things are worse than they initially seem: patient records are in disarray, staff morale is low, and there’s something afoot that she can’t quite put her finger on… As Alison starts to dig into the hospital’s past, she gradually discovers a trail of lies that runs deeper and darker than she could have ever imagined. There’s a cold-blooded killer in the hospital. And they’re hiding in plain sight… To come. Annie Payne spent most of her life as an NHS nurse, midwife and clinical network manager but now concentrates on writing full time. She has written extensively for television programmes such as The Bill, Doctors and Heartbeat under the name Candy Denman and has published a medical mystery series and novella under that name too. Now she happily writes novels in a posh shed in the garden in between playing with her six grandchildren and walking her dog, Dennis the Cockapoo. This is her debut novel as Annie Payne. • A high-concept, proposition-led domestic suspense novel with lead title potential for the UK physical and digital markets. This is a panel-tested Avon Originals concept devised off the back of up-and-coming market trends, with significant in-house support behind it already.• With a clear and fresh hook at its heart, the ‘disgraced care giver’ trope is chillingly familiar with a number of high-profile cases hitting headlines in the past few years, bringing that sense of ‘it could happen to you’ that we know readers of the genre look for.• Medical dramas consistently achieve high ratings on TV – from Doctor Foster and Trust Me to This Is Going To Hurt, which pulled in an above-average audience of 3.2 million viewers on its air date this month (more than The Brits!).• Ambition for international markets and translation too, as universal and unique hook will help this book stand apart from the crowd – with marked interest in medical thrillers in Eastern European markets in particular.• Written by an authentic voice, with extensive knowledge of both the medical field and the inner workings of the NHS.
