by Tammy Euliano
When her elderly patients start dying days after minor surgery, anesthesiologist Dr. Kate Downey wants to know why. The surgeon, not so much. “Old people die, that’s what they do.” When Kate presses, surgeon Charles Ricken places the blame squarely on her shoulders. Kate is on probation, and the chief of staff sides with the surgeon, leaving Kate to prove her innocence and save her career. With her husband in a coma, it’s all she has left.
Aided by her eccentric Great Aunt Irm, a precocious medical student, and the son of a victim, Kate launches her own unorthodox investigation. As she closes in on the culprit’s identity, she faces intimidation, threats, a home invasion, and the suspicious death of someone close to her. The stakes escalate to the breaking point when Kate, under violent duress, is forced to choose which of her loved ones to save—and which must be sacrificed.
