Abstract:

"Andrew Jones is a young doctor with an amazing gift: his abilities in surgery are astonishing. But when he cannot save a young woman at the scene of a fatal car accident, Jones abandons his gift and shuns the operating room. Lara Blair owns a Chicago-based biomedical engineering company developing a surgical tool that will duplicate precisely the movement of a surgeon's hands, eliminating human error during surgical procedures. Lara has pursued the best surgeons in the world to test this tool and all of them have failed. Discovering Andrew's unique surgical skills, Laura is determined to work with him. But Jones wants no part of it until he discovers the urgency behind Lara's work ... and somewhere, somehow, he must find the courage to trust The Touch."--Page [2] of jacket.
