Though she is far away from the hijacked planes and falling towers, the events of 9/11 have a profound effect on Erika, a teacher in Boston working with health professionals from around the world. Erika's sense of impending violence gradually pervades every facet of her life, changing forever her understanding of her colleagues' and students' "good works." The paths of vastly different people crisscross with Erika's: a Muslim family in America dealing with cancer, then ethnic profiling; an aging researcher hoping to make his mark in bio-terror's next big thing; a feisty girl in Kenya whose parents have AIDS; a nerdy high school teacher who commits a terrible crime that returns, decades later, to haunt; men who agree to use condoms and men who don't. In the classroom and in the bedroom, in the slums of Nairobi and the streets of Boston, at office parties and bedside vigils, events intersect across a global landscape
