With each New York Times best-seller, ER physician turned author Michael Palmer sets a new standard for medical suspense. Packed with factual authenticity only a doctor could prescribe, this book is Palmer's most electrifying thriller yet. Dr. Brian Holbrook-former football star and disgraced chief of cardiology-is given the chance of a lifetime when he gets a call from the prestigious Boston Heart Institute. They need him to join an elite team testing the new miracle drug Vasclear. With his father suffering from a dangerous heart condition, Holbrook seizes the opportunity to save his reputation, and also his father's life. However, when patients start dying mysteriously, and colleagues begin to disappear, it's up to Holbrook to find the truth before it's too late. Ron McLarty's inspired narration will carry you spellbound from one audiotape to the next as greed and murder join forces in the shining halls of a world-renowned hospital.
