As Robin Cook's roller-coaster of a medical thriller opens, otherwise healthy people are dying shortly after undergoing minor surgery in New York City hospitals. Dr. Laurie Montgomery and Dr. Jack Stapleton, the sparring lovers and co-workers from a previous Cook novel, VECTOR, must put their romantic difficulties aside when Laurie realizes that a serial killer is responsible for the deaths, and that she herself could be one of the killer's next targets.
