A medical thriller with lots of hospital action, doctors pitted against national health, and a filtering device that may be causing death each time it is used. Dr. Alex Airoway must save her brother's life and discover what is happening at her hospital.

Pretty good medical thriller. On the one hand, I thought the pace was a bit slow. On the other hand, I did not guess the killer, I fell for the bait.

Death is a fact of life at the Gillette Trauma Center, a prestigious Washington, D.C. facitity that gets more than its fair share of borderline cases. At some point the Drs. have all seen a recovering patient suddenly slip away as the result of a pulmonary embolus-a fatal blood clot that can form after serious injury. But lately it's been happening wiyh alarming frequency to patients of a certain Dr. Runyon. This is a very good medical thriller, a definate page-turner!!
