In the middle of the night, a fire breaks out in an old wing of a private hospital owned by Daniel Bates, who recently had done some major renovations to other parts of the building. The fire, contained largely to one four-person room and its associated adjacent rooms, claims three of those patients' lives, injures the nurse on duty, Kelly Brandon, and causes $100,000 in damage. The fourth patient, Arnold Zaduck, was not in the room, in his insomnia being in the hospital solarium at the time playing his violin. On the surface, Nurse Brandon appears negligent in her actions, among other things not sounding the alarm or calling first responders about the fire despite discovering it, about which she feels tremendous guilt. A jar of picric acid, which started the blaze, may provide some valuable information of who could have started the fire. Among the other suspects is Andy Woodman, a poor young man the beneficiary of one of the victim's life insurance. Written by Huggo
