When a spate of poisonings hits Mexton, DC Mel Cotton and her colleagues are left perplexed. All the deaths seem to be ingeniously planned and the police cannot see anything obvious to connect the victims. They all seem to have got away with harming people in some way. Is that the connection? With a serial poisoner at large, is anyone safe?
