Investigating a series of bizarre deaths that have taken place among seemingly healthy young people after routine surgeries, doctors Montgomery and Stapleton confront institutional politics that hamper their ability to prove that the deaths were intentional, a situation complicated when Montgomery discovers that she carries a genetic marker for breast cancer and requires surgery herself.

Dr. Robin Cook is the author of thirty previous books, most recently Nano, and is credited with popularizing the medical thriller with his wildly successful first novel, Coma. He divides his time between Boston and Florida. His most recent bestsellers include Death Benefit, Cure, and Intervention.From AudioFile:
Medical Examiner Dr. Laurie Montgomery has identified 13 cases of S.A.D.S. (sudden adult death syndrome) in young, healthy individuals, who, within 24 hours of having surgery, suffer sudden cardiac death and are unresponsive to herculean resuscitation efforts. Add the temptations of health care competition, a serial killer, the rocky course of true love, and the unparalleled expertise of George Guidall, and listeners will have to work to keep their pulses in check while listening to this medical thriller. Whether presenting the medical terminology of autopsy, complex explanations of human genomes, the terror of watching a killer's glee, or the rare moment when someone breaks through fear and takes charge, Guidall's delivery is authentic as he believably creates the possibility of genetic discrimination in health care.
