In a compelling thriller that examines the ethical limits of medical intervention, a secretive surgeon at a corporate medical center in Massachusetts breaks precedent, and the law, to save the life of a young woman who has become the object of his desire. Katherine Wood, beautiful, young and ambitious, dreams of working on Wall Street, until a brain tumor disrupts her plans. Half a continent away, Joan Gianelli longs to escape her world of sexual exploitation, until a bullet removes all choice. Neither can know what lies ahead at the hands of researcher and neurosurgeon Roman Czensky. Both women endure a breakthrough procedure that conjoins their lives and leads to a multitude of unforeseen outcomes. Katherine and Joan are ultimately betrayed by the doctor and his employer, CEO of a vast network in pharmaceuticals, and are secretly moved to a corporate-owned facility for convicts. One lone employee, however, who knows what really happened, conspires to free her. A disturbing, fully imagined universe of big-pharma, cutting-edge technology, and deadly human error.
