 About the Book 

Forty-four-year-old Willow King - dedicated British civil servant, glamorous romance writer, amateur sleuth, and wife to a Scotland Yard detective - is about to experience motherhood for the first time. Middle-age maternity and all its complicationsMoreForty-four-year-old Willow King - dedicated British civil servant, glamorous romance writer, amateur sleuth, and wife to a Scotland Yard detective - is about to experience motherhood for the first time. Middle-age maternity and all its complications - Willows frightening hemorrhage after her daughters birth, her worry about losing her identity and independence to nappies, feeds, and mush - would be more than enough for most women. But when Willows obstetrician, Dr. Ringstead, turns up dead, killed just as Willows baby was born, she feels compelled to investigate, even from her hospital bed. From a penny-pinching hospital manager, whod been the butt of one of Ringsteads jokes- to a disgruntled registrar, convinced that Ringstead had blocked his promotion- to a cuckolded husband, suspects abound. But the deeper Willow digs, the more nervous the killer becomes, and soon it looks as if Willow and her baby may become the next victims.
