Dead Man Driving

The Health of Strangers, #5

Lesley Kelly

Dead Man Driving by Lesley Kelly

Two years into a devastating flu pandemic, food shortages are critical. The streets are full of angry protestors objecting to the government’s proposed rationing.

Carlotta Carmichael MSP is busy organising a meeting of international Virus ministers. When a lorryload of food for her ministerial dinner gets hijacked, she calls on the unwilling assistance of the North Edinburgh Health Enforcement Team to track down its missing driver. While the lorry proves easy to find, the identity of the dead young woman in its hold is less easy to establish.

Everyone’s hungry. Everyone’s scared. And the Health Enforcement Team are driving blind.
