From the back of the book: "St. Catherine's Hospital, San Francisco. In the emergency room, a healthy seventeen-year-old girl dies of a massive cerebral hemmorrhage. Dr. Gabe Austin begins an investigation that leads him into a web of fraud, corruption, and murder...
Gabe uncovers two cases similar to the St. Catherine teen's death-and learns that all three victims had been taking the new drug Virazine, Kimberly Lab's hottest, FDA-sanctioned wonder drug. With the help of Kate Reilly, his Yale Medical School love, Gabe tracks down Kimberly's chairman, who offers him a lucrative consulting deal; an eccentric chemistry researcher turned wealthy Kimberly executive; the firm's frail research genius; and a septuagenarian scientist whose precise experiments promise chilling answers to the Virazine puzzle.
The hunt quickens as Austin cuts through an elaborate corporate coverup engineered by top-level strategists, enforced by payrolled thugs, and fueled by potentially staggering drug profits."
