The sequel to Deadly Errand ( LJ 7/92) again features private-eye nurse Kate Kinsella in a traditional British mystery. While on duty at Longborough General Hospital, Kinsella meets a paranoid patient (also a nurse) who fears a murderous pursuer.

From Kirkus Reviews
Just because suicidal district nurse Vanessa Wootten is paranoid (and manic-depressive too), does that mean that nobody's out to get her? She insists to nurse/detective Kate Kinsella (Deadly Errand, 1992) that someone's following her and making threatening calls; but no one who knows Vanessa's medical history (two psychiatric hospitalizations before her present suicide attempt) believes her, and even Kate has trouble swallowing some of her wilder accusations--that she was raped by her ex-lover, constable Paul Oakby, and terrorized by her estranged sister Sheila's onetime fianc Colin Tiffield. In the meantime, murder (beginning with a harmless elderly patient of hers) has been following Vanessa almost as closely as unsuitable men. Whether or not she's right about being persecuted, somebody's sure telling a pack of lies. Overloaded with people and incidents (some of them fascinating, like Kate's all-night vigil with a suicidal young doctor) that obscure the strong central situation here. But Green's inventive powers are almost as prodigious as Vanessa's. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.

The book does get tangled up in its own feet at a certain point by introducing too many characters and too much information. Still, for me, it gives a lot of hope for the writer/series.
This is one of the earlier books in the series. Kate decides to go on holiday (take a vacation) and ends up in Wales, in a dreadful trailer (caravan). She runs into a friend from school, whom she barely recognizes. The friend is getting married and living in her fiance's house on a cliff in Cornwall (remember Rebecca?) The fiance's wife had committed suicide over the edge of the cliff, taking their two children, and Kate's friend is convinced the place is haunted. Kate ends up going to visit to investigate -- her concerns have to do with the fiance, not ghosts.
This is a real page-turner -- quick pace, lots of interesting characters, and a romantic location in an old house by the ocean.
