Chanel Munro has landed her dream job as a junior resident doctor at the prestigious Sydney Harbour Hospital. Only two years out from medical school, she can’t believe she’s been chosen by the highly respected Doctor Leo Baker to be part of his team. She’s stunned she’s made it through the gruelling selection process. It’s well known that he chooses only the best.
But an esteemed position on Doctor Baker’s team doesn’t come without sacrifice. It soon becomes clear the doctor expects her to provide him with certain favors in return for her position on his team and he’s not talking about volunteering for the coffee run.
Scared, angry and confused, Chanel is at a loss what to do. She refuses to give in to blackmail, but if she takes her complaint to the medical board and they don’t believe her, her career will be in ruins. The years of study and sacrifice will be for nothing. Vowing to steer clear of him until she can come up with a viable plan, she keeps a low profile and puts all of her energies into the job that she loves.
But patients are dying strange and unpredictable deaths under Doctor Baker’s care and she can’t help but wonder why. Despite his personal failings, he’s an exceptional doctor. It’s ludicrous to suggest he’s at fault. As the death toll continues to climb, Chanel takes her concerns to the police.
Detective Sergeant Bryce Sutcliffe of the City of Sydney Police Station takes Chanel’s statement. Despite the fact he’s drawn to her earthy beauty, he’s sceptical of her claims and can’t help but wonder if there isn’t more behind her complaint.
When the elderly mother of a New South Wales senator dies under Doctor Baker’s care, the resulting media circus and pressure from above forces Bryce to pay attention. Could the girl with the compelling eyes have been telling the truth? Could the Sydney Harbour Hospital’s most highly respected doctor be a murderer?
