The master of medical suspense takes you to prestigious Boston Heart Institute, where some patients are dying to get well....
After a troubled past, Dr. Brian Holbrook has been given a second chance to prove himself. At state-of-the-art Boston Heart Institute, he's been chosen to join the medical team testing a new miracle drug. The initial results are so promising that Brian pushes to get his father--who suffers from a dangerous heart condition--accepted into the study.
But Brian is beginning to suspect his superiors are hiding something. Why are crucial records disappearing? Why did a patient making startling progress suddenly die? Is the miracle drug a prescription for death? The answers could cost Brian more than his career. For at Boston Heart Institute, knowing too much is the quickest way to the morgue.
