"Dr. Evelyn Sutcliffe works and thrives in an urban warzone -- battling death everyday in the Emergency Room of Manhattan's University Hospital. But even her superior skill cannot save Shelley Reinish -- a fellow doctor, a close friend and apparent suicide -- dead from a drug overdose. This time the Reaper has won, leaving Evelyn distraught and devastated, and questioning her abilities as a healer. But why would Shelley -- a healthy, talented young surgeon with a good marriage -- take her own life? It is a question that haunts Dr. Sutcliffe; one that is leading her into the hidden corners of the medical world toward terrifying secrets that reside in the darkest recesses of the human heart." --Amazon.com.
