Summary

In the Royal Free of London Hospital, death is an enemy; it is very unusual that somebody be assassinated. When the corpse of nurse Barrymore is discovered in a laundry basket, the police turn a blind eye towards Dr. Kristian Beck's probable guilt, just because he is a foreigner. The commission that directs the hospital orders the case to be investigated. As the investigation advances, everyone will begin to doubt the impartiality of justice.
