Inspector Alleyn just wants to write a letter home to his wife, but his ambitions are thwarted by a daring theft at an isolated hospital on New Zealand's lonely Canterbury Plains. The hospital is crammed with convalescing soldiers - noisy, restless and over-interested in the nurses, who are overtired, underpaid, and desperate for the war to end.

With the electricity lines down, a storm is on its way and the nearby river about to burst its banks, the body count in the hospital's morgue begins to rise...And Alleyn finds himself stranded with just one night in which to find the thief - and a murderer.
