"Ladarat Patalung never wanted to become a detective. She was content with her work as a nurse-ethicist, exhorting her fellow nurses and physicians to behave ethically. But when a mysterious woman known as 'Peaflower' begins killing middle-aged men, hospital's excellent reputation is threatened and Ladarat decides that she must act. When she does, her efforts are confounded by an unkempt barefoot man in the intensive care unit and by the fevered preparations for a royal inspection that will determine her hospital's future. Nevertheless, Ladarat is surprised to discover that she has considerable talents as a detective, and with the help of her assistant and a kind detective, she sets out to catch a murderer"-- Provided by publisher.
"A fascinating mystery set in Thailand in the vein of Alexander McCall Smith, where a nurse ethicist turns detective. Ladarat Patalung, for one, would have been happier without a serial murderer in her life. Then again, she never meant to be a detective in the first place. But while content in her role at the Chaing Mai Hospital in Thailand as the nurse ethicist, Ladarat couldn't resist when police detective Kuhn Wiriya came to her with his dilemma. Two nights ago, a young woman brought her husband to the emergency room, where he passed away. Now someone remembers her coming in before, with a different husband (who also died). Is there a serial killer on the loose? One who likes to murder her husbands? And what else can one lone nurse ethicist do about it, but investigate?"-- Provided by publisher.
