When John McKirrop takes shelter in a deserted graveyard one night, he witnesses the disinterment of the body of a young boy. Yet no one takes much notice of his stories. After all, who would believe the rantings of a homeless drunk? Father Ryan Lafferty, the local priest, is trying to help the boy’s distraught father find his son’s body. Alarmed by implications of black magic, he becomes even more inquisitive when McKirrop dies under suspicious circumstances. At the same time, a young female doctor, Sarah Lasseter, begins to query procedures at the trauma unit where she treated both the missing boy and McKirrop. Sarah and Father Ryan join forces as it becomes clear that beneath the cover of the noble advancement of medicine there is, ironically, both a sinister and horrific invention and a brilliant discovery — for which someone is prepared to kill, at whatever cost.

We all labour against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Sir Thomas Brown (Religio Medici)
John Main climbed to the top of the hill and turned to look out over the city to the Firth of Forth and the hills of Fife beyond. He was out of breath from the climb and his hands were muddy from the hard scramble over wet ground. It had started to rain again but it didn’t matter. Nothing mattered. He wasn’t sure what he was looking for up here, but it had something to do with perspective. The only other thing he knew was that he hadn’t found it.
