The “master of medical suspense” (The New York Times) rivets us with harrowing dramas based on all-too-real possibilities. Now, Cook’s latest pulse-pounding tale shows that when greed mixes with medicine, the side effects can be critical…
Early in her career, Dr. Angela Dawson suffered a devastating blow when her primary-care practice went bankrupt. Derailed but not defeated, she returned to school to earn an MBA. Armed with a shiny new degree and blessed with determination, intelligence and impeccable timing, Angela founded Angels Healthcare Specialty Hospitals with locations in New York City and future sites planned for Miami and Los Angeles. Then a surge of drug-resistant staph infections, resulting in numerous patient deaths, puts Angela’s empire in jeopardy. New York City medical examiners—and newlyweds—Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton suspect foul play and are additionally concerned as Jack is scheduled for knee surgery at Angels Orthopedic Hospital. As Laurie and Jack dig deep into the upsurge of staph-related deaths and the consequential financial crisis at Angels Healthcare, they uncover evidence to support a claim of corruption. Will they be able to stop the string of infections before the lives of more patients flatline…including recently admitted Jack Stapleton?
