Dr. Sarah Blakeney is one of very few mourners when her sharp-tongued patient, Mathilda Gillespie, dies at home in the bathtub, apparently of suicide. The woman has taken barbiturates, slit her wrists, and bound her head in a rusted device called a scold's bridle, a cage with tongue clamps used to torture women in the Middle Ages. The police start to suspect homicide right around the time they learn that Sarah has been generously included in the dead woman's will. When she becomes the prime suspect in the murder, it's up to Sarah to delve into the bizarre details of Mathilda's private life -- a history of greed, abuse, and depravity -- and uncover the real killer
