This was quite an intriguing story about a bone marrow donor who meets and falls in love with her recipient. There is a lot about living on the streets, betrayal and murder.A surprise ending that I did not see coming.

Someone is killing homeless men, then impaling them on spikes of gates that are locked at dark that lead to the London Zoo. Sometimes homeless hide in park to sleep after closing. Woman leaves abusive boyfriend and house & pet sits at nice house near the park. She meets the man whom she donated bone marrow to, but he may not be what he seems. One of the homeless men (he has money, but chooses to live on street since his wife and children died) is "watching over" her.
