the health of strangers



Nobody likes the North Edinburgh Health Enforcement Team, least of all the people who work for it.  An uneasy mix of seconded Police and health service staff, Mona, Bernard and their colleagues stem the spread of the Virus, a mutant strain of influenza, by tracking down people who have missed their monthly health check.

Now two young divinity students are missing, after going drinking in a bikers’ bar.  Mona and Bernard need to fight their way through an investigation involving cults, late night raves, and the mysterious involvement of overseas governments to find the girls - before anyone else does.
