After losing his ophthalmology practice to AmeriCare, a giant conglomerate, and then his wife and two daughters to an airline tragedy, Dr John Stapleton's life is reduced to ashes. He re-trains in forensic pathology and moves to the cold, indifferent, concrete maze of New York. There Stapleton believes himself past caring - yet his suspicions are aroused as virulent and lethal illnesses begin to strike the young, the old and the innocent regardless. When the epicentres of such outbreaks are revealed to be hospitals and clinics controlled by the same profit-hungry giant that cannibalised his previous practice, Stapleton senses that he has stumbled upon a conspiracy of catastrophic proportions. Could that same ruthless corporation be systematically and ruthlessly eliminating its more costly and time-consuming patients? Getting at the truth leads Stapleton to an unlikely pairing with Theresa Hagan, art director at an advertising firm… and together they discover that behind these killer contagions lies an explanation even more devious and shocking than could be imagined.
